I took 2 grams of Phenibut HCl in 250mg capsules (I took 8) at 7:45 PM, it wasn't my first time but I usually do 1.5 grams and this time the effects were much more intense. I didn't feel basically anything until 10:00 - 10:30, but then, when it kicked in, it was fantastic.
It lasted the whole night (I went to sleep around 4:30 AM) while I was out socializing: it's not easy to describe, I like to compare it with alcohol, but this association can be misleading, so I have to explain more: I was disinhibited, completely anxiety-free (I suffer a little social anxiety and phenibut totally took it away), I could talk to anyone about anything and I was so full of energy... It was almost like being on some kind of stimulant.
Euphoria also played a huge role: I constantly had a smile on my face and I was really enjoying talking to people and hearing what they would say. I'm usually quite the opposite, not very socially active, I don't talk much and phenibut definitely changed this.
For what concerns the side effects I didn't notice any during the night, but I did have a kind of mental cloudiness the morning after, but nothing too heavy and not even comparable to the alcohol hangover.
