working on an pro-sleep/anxiolytic stack that does not utilize anticholinergics like hydroxyzine or benzodiazepines as to not impair my mental functioning. Although my current stack does utilize some mild gabaergics and is as follows:
-1000mg EPA/DHA (fish oil)
-1000mg ALA (flaxseed oil)
-600mg St. Johns Wort (might switch this one out for Kanna/Sceletium Tortuosum, I have yet to try it, but SJW seems like it isnt all that effective).
-4 tea bags of Chamomile brewed tea
-2,100mg Valerian root (capsule form)
- 800mg magnesium glycinate
- 3x kava root capsules each containing 1,455mg dry herb and 75mg kavalactone extract
*I plan to take this at night and I have heard the PDE4 activation of Kanna can cause insomnia if taken in the evening. I am definitely sensitive to any kind of stimulant and suffer greatly from insomnia, hence the hydroxyzine use which i would like to discontinue..
*I may had some amino acids like Taurine, L-tryptophan and perhaps 5-HTP
*Agmatine - would this be helpful as a sedative or atleast potentiating the anxiolytic herbs?
Any, and all feedback is greatly appreciated. What are your thoughts on this?
