I am giving GABA to my 20 year old autistic son who recently developed schizophrenia. My doctor recommended it for him. His anxiety levels were off the "charts" and he was taking Ativan, a strong prescription medication to help control the anxiety. I have been able to completely wean him off of Ativan and he only takes GABA now for anxiety. It's made a significant difference. I give this throughout the day and especially at night. However I have found that 750 mg on an empty stomach causes anxiety. I give it with food and also buy a smaller dose to keep him dosed throughout the day. I also supplement with Extress, a homeopathic remedy by VAXA which contains GABA also. GABA has been a life saver for us.
