Title: Are you trying out POIS treatments?
Post by: Journey on December 09, 2020, 12:37:35 PM
In order to understand better how many POISers have tried things to cure/treat/reduce/change POIS and how many have succeeded and how many haven't tried them because of specific reasons I have decided to make this poll-if possible post about what you tried and which things worked and which didn't and any other details that you think are useful.

I take 3g of taurine o a daily basis. It really is the only supplement that is consistently helpful and does not have any negative side effects. I experimented a lot with methylation supplements and provided I can tolerate them, they're very helpful. Unfortunately, I don't tolerate them very well, and they tend to increase my esophageal pain and sometimes cause ridiculous fatigue and other weird symptoms.

All at once or split up?

Usually I split. Half in the morning and half in the evening. I've found that once a day dosing is insufficient.

While acute taurine administration activates the GABAA receptor, chronic taurine feeding promotes the downregulation of the GABAA receptor (L'Amoreaux et al., 2010) and the upregulation of glutamate decarboxylase, the rate-limiting step in GABA biosynthesis (El Idrissi and L'Amoreaux, 2008).

Be careful
