I just want to caution those who have never taken L-Theanine before. Many people have experienced greater anxiety than they were experiencing before. Sadly ironic, most of them were seeking something to relieve their acute anxiety and high blood pressure. I had taken it to relieve my high BP and at first it was amazing. I was so alert and calm at the same time. I checked my BP with my home unit and it was indeed much lower. I let the dose I took wear off and I was subjected to heart palpitations and anxiety big time. It was as though there was some sort of "snap-back" effect where the symptoms were suppressed but once released came back amplified.

Good luck. I hope you find relief to your problems.
we, my cousin and i, take care of our parents at home, my mother is 101 and aunt is 103. aunt has short term memory loss and mild dementia, gets angry and anxious. but does not do well on any prescription antianxiety meds or antidepressants. suntheanine or l-theanine is wonderful for her. she takes 100mg morning and evening. keeps her calm or at least calmer without risking falls and we have more peace in the house. it has a mild taste so is easily disguised in her food or on toast. she had a bad reaction to zoloft in the past, sleeping all the time, had dehydration and a bad fall and got overly stimulated with the exelon patch. this is a wonderful supplement

I recently inquired about various supplements for anxiety at Whole Foods Market. Besides 5-HTP, the specialist told me that another popular amino acid for anxiety and stress was L-Theanine. I tried it and have to say, it had an immediate effect! Within about 15 minutes I was feeling very calm. I also slept incredibly deeply for 8 hours, not waking once. I look forward to seeing if it works for PMS and will report back to you if it works! They suggest on the bottle to take one every 4 hours but frankly, 1 a day works just fine for me!
