      I have problems with panic attacks and have on occasion had accute anxiety attacks. My profession does not allow me to take the normal prescription drugs for this disorder. After talking to a few different doctors, they recommended the use of theanine. I take one capsule morning and night and have not had an episode since! It works for me and weather or not it's a placebo effect, I'll continue to take theanine!

      >> A Vitamin Shoppe Customer commented on this review on 2010-11-29
      I take one 100mg capsule before bed and another after I get up...took about 2-3 days to have the tightness in my chest due to the anxiety to go away. If I'm stressed more than normal, then I'll take two at night.

      My doctor has recommended meds for my ADHD and I've heard so many wonderful things about L-Theanine and the "calm but alert" feeling it gives. I'd rather not take meds initially, but go the natural route. I started with 100 mg and it knocked me out cold! I'm 5'2" and 110 lbs. I was more irritable then ever and three days later I had to quit taking this supplement. Since I've been off, I'm back to my old figidity self, but not as "out there" as on L-Theanine.

      I have an appointment with an herbalist who can really help me professionally.

      I'm glad this works for most people, it's just not for me.

          Comments about the Vitamin Shoppe L-Theanine 100 MG - 120 Capsules:

          I follow a certain regimine, and this is one of the items at 100mg per day which can either be taken all at once or seperately to make 100mg per day. This type of supplement is actually included in a number of energy drinks, and helps you to relax and yet promotes focus. It is supposed to help one be able to deal with anxiety issues. It can be found in green tea and certain mushrooms, however if you are worried about additives in these things, and wish to make sure you get 100mg per day, perhaps the supplement pills are the best way.

                Comments about the Vitamin Shoppe L-Theanine 100 MG - 120 Capsules:

                A few years ago when the economy took a toll on our business I experienced extreme stress, anxiety and depression. For a couple of years I was on RX drugs which I really did not like or want to be on.

                I am happy to say that the VS L-Theanine combined with 5-HTP really helped with my symptoms and I am now drug free. I continue to take these products and I am happy with my results. I take 1 100 mg of 5-HTP in the morning and one at night. The 5 HTP helps me keep a positive mood.

                I take 1-2 100 mg of L-Theanine as needed for anxiety or stress related days. I have found that this really calms and relaxes my mind. If I cannot sleep with a racing mind I find 2 capsules before bed helps me relax and calm the mind. It does not take long to feel the effectiveness.

                I am sure if I had not researched and found these amino acids I would still continue to be on RX meds as our situation is still somewhat the same but I have more of a positive outlook without the drug side effects.

                Absolutely does reduce anxiety, as well as or better than any prescription med I've used. Adjust dosage to your needs - you can take more tha one. I take four for insomnia, and they really relax me.

                    I started looking at alternative medicine when I realized that the anti-anxiety medication I was given for my PTSD was a highly addictive benzodiazepine. L-theanine has proven very helpful in controlling anxiety. Thanks to a combination of vegetarian vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and essential fatty acids, I was able to get off all pharmaceutical medications and have been drug free for over two years.

                        I suffer from general anxiety disorder and dermatillomania. For those that don't know what dermatillomania is, it's very similar to trichtotillamania except instead of pulling your hair out you pick your skin into pieces. This is caused by the general anxiety. I found this herb to be extremely helpful in calming the anxiety so that my skin suffers much less. For those that suffer from this as well, I took 3 capsules in the morning. It is non-drowsy and doesn't affect your alertness during the day. For nighttime relief I chose 5-http as it also helps but causes drowsiness.

                                    I heard of L-Theanine mentioned as a possible help for children with ADD. I gave it a try with my 12 year old son. After a week on 1 capsule he really didn't seem or feel different. We went to 2 capsules a day and he began to be able to focus, write and keep friends. He has been taking this for 4 years. It has been life changing for our family

                                    This product does not say that it uses the Suntheanine brand. Do you find there to be a difference between Suntheanine and brands of L-theanine that are not Suntheanine?

                                    Best Answer: Okay, I was told by a nutritionist at a well known and long-established vitamin store/compounding pharmacy in NYC that theanine all comes from one supplier and all the vitamin companies do is package it their own way with their own additives. I don't know if this helps, since I don't know what suntheanine is.

                                    I was wondering if since this is a capsule does anyone know if you can open it up and mix it in with food or drink?

                                    is this product gluten free?

                                    Best Answer: Hi, Irene -- The bottle labeling doesn't specifically say it is gluten-free, so if you need to be absolutely positive I guess I'd take that as a "no". What it does say is that ingredients in addition to its patented brand of L-Theanine are: rice flour, gelatin, and magnesium stearate. It then says:

                                    NO Yeast, Corn, Wheat, Sugar, Salt, Soy, Dairy, Citrus, Fish, Artificial Colors or Flavors Added

                                    I hope this helps at least a little. Good luck to you in finding what you need!
