Because GABA is a natural substance, it is generally considered well-tolerated. Some people who consume GABA have noticed a small change in the heart rate and breathing. Few have reported that they have stomach problems. Nevertheless, GABA is generally considered to be a compatible dietary supplement. An overdose (over 20g) can cause unpleasant side effects such as anxiety and insomnia as well as shortness of breath.
Pregnant or lactating women and people who have liver and / or kidney damage should definitely avoid GABA. There is an addictive potential when mixing GABA with prescription sleep aids or sedatives. Epilepsy should consult a doctor before taking GABA. Alcohol and cannabis use in combination with GABA can lead to memory lapses.
