What is Phenibut Tolerance and How to Prevent It

Brought to you by Matt from PhenibutHero LLC

If you are regular user of phenibut, you will really benefit from its many uses.

However, it is important to keep in mind the very real risk of developing a tolerance towards phenibut.

What is tolerance?

In the context of substances, tolerance is simply when your response to a drug becomes diminished.

This means that when you take your typical dosage, you will not "feel" the effects as much as you did previously.

When it feels like the phenibut is "not working" anymore - you probably have a tolerance built up.

Why phenibut tolerance is a problem

When people develop a tolerance for phenibut, the easiest thing they think of doing is to just increase the dosage amount.

However, that is a very bad idea.

For one, it wastes phenibut by using more of it just to get the same effects as you did before the tolerance developed.

And that obviously would be a waste of money as well.

Increased dosage over time as a result of building up tolerance to phenibut.
With a tolerance developed, it takes a larger dosage to get the same effect in the begining.

Secondly, continuing to up your dosage amounts will not end well as soon as you skip (or miss) a dosage.

As soon as your body doesn't get the phenibut dosage it is expecting, things really go downhill.

The end result - withdrawal

Once you finally decide to lay off the phenibut, you will run into phenibut withdrawal.

It basically means your body is expecting the phenibut, but it just doesn't get any.

And as you may have guessed, it can lead to some fairly unpleasant side effects.

Depending on how long you've been using phenibut and how high your dosages have gotten, the severity of your withdraw will also vary accordingly.

For example, if you take around the maximum daily limit (that's 2g) and take a rest day even just once a week, there is only a small chance you will have a withdrawal that is even noticeable to you.

But if you are taking way over the limit (which we do NOT recommend) and/or haven't given yourself a rest day in weeks, then it could be fairly severe.

Tolerance and the inevitable withdrawal are not permanent, but it is best to avoid it as much as possible.

Recovering from withdrawal also resets your body so that you no longer have a phenibut tolerance.

So be sure to check out our article on phenibut withdrawal to understand the recovery process completely.

The solution to preventing tolerance? Cycling!

At this point, you now know that phenibut tolerance is bad because it leads to an inevitable withdrawal.

And withdrawal alone comes with many adverse side effects as you recover from it.

The next logical question is clearly how we can avoid all of this?

The answer is to cycle your phenibut!

This means simply limiting how often you take phenibut to prevent tolerance buildup.

"Phenibut Cycling" is a essential technique to prevent phenibut tolerance.

All while still enjoying the benefits of phenibut on a regular basis!

You can also effectively get the same effect by limiting how much phenibut you take.

So in other words, cycling is just a fancy word for moderation.

Keeping dosage frequency and/or dosage amount low will help to prevent tolerance and thus the negative side effects that come with an inevitable withdrawal phase.

The consensus cycle time - it depends!

If you're conscious about how to avoid tolerance altogether, then you may be wondering if there's a magic number to make sure you do that.

Unfortunately, there is no clear-cut answer.

That's because every user is different and there are a lot of factors that come into play.

That being said, here's some good guidelines on how to cycle (based on your total daily intake) to help keep your risk of tolerance low:

  1. If taking less than 400mg (especially if you are just using phenibut for sleep), then you can definitely take phenibut everyday!

  2. If taking around 750mg, then you can take phenibut every day as well, ideally with a few days rest every few weeks or so.

  3. If taking around 1500mg, then you should definitely take 1 or 2 rest days per week (i.e. you can take phenibut 5 to 6 days per week).

  4. If taking well above our recommended 24hr limit of 2000g, then you should not take phenibut again for another 3 days minimum.

The last case is the only case in which you really need to cycle proactively.

And that's a big reason we recommend that 2000g limit in the first place.

As long as you stay responsible and stick to our recommended dosage limits, you should really not have to worry about developing a significant tolerance.

Assuming you take some rest days ever so often!

If you want to know more precisely how your dosage amount should dictate your cycling pattern, then check out our dosage calculator.

Just enter your own personal dosage amount and our calculator will give you guidelines for how often to take phenibut.

The other thing that is important to do is to always listen to your body.

If you ever notice that the phenibut high is not as good as it used to be, even just slightly, it would definitely be a good idea to temporarily either:

  1. Spread your dosages out by an extra day or two.

  2. Take slightly smaller dosages from now on.

My last word of advice to you is this:

As long as you don't overuse phenibut, it will be kind to you and you will be able to enjoy it for the long haul!
