Hello all. Dont seem to have a thread on this. BF has been using Relicalm and he says it works well for him. I bought a packet now for myself to see if I can just take the edge off a bit with the no smoking thing.

Have you used it and have you found it useful?

Doesn't work well. I usually down 10mg diazepam with a double whiskey so maybe I have a tolerance.

Relicalm is to keep you calm, but won't work if you are in a very anxious state. It's a schedule 2, so you wouldn't really take 2 x pills and then drive.

Is the sedative effect that prominent? Half of my class pops them and drives after tests lmao

Well, it'll affect different people differently, yes, but I wouldn't do that. It affects my alertness (response times), grip (hands) and body joints.

BTW don't you take something to calm you down before the test?

Nope, caffeine pill (200mg) an hour before the test. For my boards, I might need something but when that bridge comes I will cross it :p

Just my 2 cents here but I would never trust my mental health with those over the counter meds. My suggestion is to rather go seek professional advice and get your problem properly diagnosed and allow them to prescribe a strong enough medication. It is expensive in the beginning but being properly diagnosed by a professional will avoid any future confusion over your condition and is much more acceptable by the civil society.

Ockie, please tell us how it goes. I take Felix, which seems to help, R228 a bottle though. Is this Relicalm over the counter? How much does it cost?

My SO swears by Nativa Night. I've tried various L Theanine products with no effect. Neither of us are affected by caffeine at all.

Personally I find NAC more effective.

I like powders because they are a lot cheaper:

Relicalm
20 Tablets
150mg per tablet
R74.99 per bottle
20 * 150 = 3000mg
R24.99 per gram

Powder
30 grams
R199 per bottle
R6.63 per gram

i went from 2 packs of ciggies a day (3 when drinking) to vaping 18mg for a few years
then toned down to 6mg
then 3mg
then bought 0mg and blended it with my 3mg
in the last week i was only on 0mg
then stopped cold turkey and never looked back
