Phenibut can be used with stimulants for maximum effect.

This is an important section because phenibut absolutely can be used with other drugs, including and especially caffeine.

This is because phenibut works with GABA receptors in the brain and does not conflict with most other drugs.

Phenibut is known to be popularly mixed with stimulants like caffeine, and Adderall. This is because it nullifies the anxiety/jitters of these drugs, allowing you to take advantage of higher energy and calmness/comfortability.

Red Monkey was especially designed with a bunch of other ingredients in it along with the phenibut to max its effectiveness (“potentiation” in Nootropic-slang).

It was also designed with using caffeine in mind.


Taking phenibut with caffeine is highly recommended. You will gain the much higher energy, focus, and enhanced thinking ability of caffeine without any of the heart-pounding, anxiety, or shaking.

Taking a lot of caffeine or taking too much can lead to slight crashes, but the phenibut, having a very long half-life, will keep you afloat. It lasts a long time and won’t let you down even after the caffeine has dissipated.

I strongly recommend taking phenibut with caffeine, even if it’s your first time. This combo will make you extremely productive and creative, and if you need to wake up or tackle a rough day this can make all the difference.

I’ve never had a bad experience with the two.


Phenibut combined with alcohol will generally feel like what you would expect. You really won’t NEED to drink any alcohol if you’re on phenibut, you’ll already be “there.”

The effects are different and blend well together.

A bunch of scaredy-cats on the web say alcohol and phenibut together will kill you. Don’t listen to them–unless you have a very low tolerance drug.

Alcohol gets you intoxicated, but phenibut stimulates you. Adding the two together can keep you buzzed and social and uninhibited, and when the booze wears off the phenibut will still be going, maintaining your momentum.


For some reason phenibut is a stimulant, even though scientifically it isn’t.

This all has to do with energy and how phenibut unleashes your true self. It produces some crazy-ass psychic effects and attracts people to you. And it does this without fucking you up like booze does.

That is why I recommend skipping the alcohol completely and doing phenibut instead.

Replacing booze with phenibut

Pull apart a pill of Red Monkey and dump all the white stuff into some water or orange juice (or vodka).

Dunk it and drink some caffeine or an energy drink.

In 1-2 hours you will have a noticable effect.

Take 3-6 hours before you get your party on for max effect.

Then slay bitches!!!


Depending on who you are it’s entirely your decision whether to take Adderall with phenibut. Generally I would recommend caffeine instead, since Adderall can result in more of a crash or make you “crazy.” I remember running around, singing loudly, having boundless energy, and generally showing zero restraint. On the other hand, nobody minded (hah).

Not a lot of people have done this and research is inconclusive. If you have access to Adderall, by all means, see what it does for you. You might escape the “heart-pounding” or potential for extreme anxiety that Adderall can produce. I’ll admit I’ve only done it a couple times. I doubt it’s “dangerous,” but be prepared for the crash later.

I’d take a look at this article. It puts into words exactly what I felt and describes the benefits of using the two together.

    I highly recommend not drinking more than two drinks on Phenibut. I can assure you taking at least 2g’s of phenibut and drinking two drinks will make you feel like six. I was stupid and drank about six beers on Phenibut, and was puking my guts out the entire night. It made me feel completely wasted very quickly. Don’t recommend drinking too much on Phenibut.

      As always, phenibut and alcohol are heavily dependent on your body chemistry and composition.

      I can assure you that your experience is NOT standard, as there is no standard. But thanks for your personal opinion.

      It is true that drinking with phenibut can increase the GABA levels too much, so I do encourage wisdom.

    Phenibut G-d,

    I’ve tried phenibut a few times at various dosages, and not felt much of an effect. I recently got some from Liftmode, so I assume it’s good quality. I tried 1gm, 1.1, and this morning 1.3 (not on consecutive days).

    Hoping for something more than I have felt. I do usually respond well to Rx benzos.

    Any suggestions on improving my experience? Should I increase the dose further?

  3. Susanne Jones

    I’m so glad I found your site. I have had social anxiety for years. I also have inattentive ADHD. This is my first time trying phenibut. I just took 1 gram like you suggested with 20 mg of Adderall. Neither one has kicked in yet, but I hopefuls that the Phenibut will help me with my anxiety. I am going to start pushing myself out ofy comfort zone starting tonight. I am going to a college football game and I will force myself to say hello to as many people as possible. I will report back with the results.

    Hello, I had a head injury 2 years ago. I literally cannot sleep and ended up in the emergency room after 6 days. From that point I have been on benzodiazepines for almost 2 years straight. I am wondering is this something that can help me sleep and wean off of benzodiazepines. If so do you have any ideas or recommendations on how much to take and when. Thank you

    1. Phenibut God

      Since I’m not a doctor, I don’t know. But I do not recommend phenibut for sleep, since the doses for sleep are too high.

      Phenibut is best used 2-5 times a week max at low doses.

      This isn’t medical advice.

    in the mourning,1 gram of phenibut when i wake up, i wait 20 mins,then have various fruits for breakfast folowed by a beverage(black honey, limon,natural gazeified water and hight caffeine green tea): i feel invincible and limitless

    The part about the alcohol kinda discredited the rest of the article for me and had to stop reading. As you even said, they both act on gaba receptors, so mixing them does have an effect. And depending on when you mix them will have different effects, because of phenibuts timeline. Telling people otherwise could be dangerous, as someone might drink too much, or also too much sedation.

    Just because you haven’t felt them combining doesn’t mean that they aren’t.. I’m just posting this to educate, not to troll or sh*t on what you had to say..

  7. Chris

    Done nearly half a bottle of whiskey and 3g of phenibut this eve. Just chilled out. As with all substances know your self and know what your about. Its tje first time iv done phenibut and relate it to a weak sedative drug. It’s like anitriptoline but cleaner. Also resembles pericyasine but not as good. I dought I’d bother with it again tbh.

  8. My personal experience is that alcohol sort of ‘ruins’ phenibut for me, but I can see how some might enjoy it. when I say ‘ruin’ I guess I mean I remember the experience less and I am less present or mindful. I really love phenibut, and I think some people are simply better responders to the supplement than others, and maybe some people experience more withdraw than others. Thanks for the site James!

    You lost all credibility when you advised mixing phenibut and alcohol. You need to treat lightly with this combo otherwise you could indeed experience too much respiration suppression, and/or ended up puking for hours. I am a pharmacist, and I have a lot of interest in recreational research drugs, although I believe phenibut is prescribed in some places outside of the US.
    Phenibut affects the gaba b system, alcohol on the other hand affects mainly gaba a, but also to a smaller degree, gaba b. Alcohol is a very “dirty drug”.

    1. Phenibut God

      In all your Infinite Wisdom O Holy pharmacist, do you actually have any experience trying this combo?

      I don’t care about your theoretical science or credentials. I and many others have done this on typical (low) Doses and even higher and been fine.

    Niki Phenibut and Kratom mixed together is amazing!!!! Their Synergy is awesome and they go together so perfectly. I do 2 grams of Pheni and 6.5 grams of Thai Red Kratom and feel soooooo good i just wanna lay on a floor with shit tons of puppies and play lol

  11. Topseven

    I have used phenibut for about 4 years without dependence or PAWS and have no problem mixing phenibut with other substances but I do it rarely, in small amounts, so I don’t endanger my health. It stacks synergistically and plays well with others.

    Large doses of phenibut and alcohol can result in puking and headaches. Happened to me once, but I learned my lesson and have not repeated it.

    In relation to reading articles about mixing phenibut, as well as anything else, remember this —- YOUR MILEAGE MAY VARY.
