What are the effects of GABA on gastroduodenal ulceration?

What are the effects of GABA on gastroduodenal ulceration?

There are other citations that support this. ...Read more

Is the supplement kavinace with GABA safe to take during pregnancy? What would the effects on the baby be if taken?

Gabapentin : There are other anti- seizure medications that might be more tolerable for you than Depakote that are also not benzodiazepines. Gabapentin (brand is neurontin) and its newer cousin, prefab akin (brand is lyrica) work on gaba and can be helpful for anxiety (off-label).

My mom is 51 has factor 5, varicose veins and anemia as well as hormonal imbalance. Can she take GABA supplement? And what are the side effects?

GABA supplement?: I don't know what "gaba supplement" is. And no one likely does -- that is it isn't regulated so it can be anything.
