Just found this thread. It's been a couple years since I tried it but L-Theanine had a negative effect on my boners too. Green tea had a negative effect too. I didn't record dosages so I can't provide that here.

Wow, another guy affected. We still don't understand the mechanism of action. I'm waiting for more research papers. Is it possible the 5-HT1a receptor was involved?!

Thanks for the input. I also suspected these 3 play an intimate role. Perhaps the histamine lowering effect is the cause? I have pure Histidine on standby here... maybe I should dose L-Theanine and then 3 hours later try using L-Hisitidine...?

I think if it’s really adrenaline blocking it might be the cause. I thought a certain degree of adrenaline is needed for arousal as in arousal increases heart rate a little. Without this type of arousal you’re just chill and dont really get any response.

Hmmm maybe this is the rebound that I crave when Cyproheptadine wears off?!

what are your thoughts on this then? I was thinking of doing sports research 200mg of suntheanine just 3 days a week. I was also going to add in taurine, olive leaf extract and ashwaganda.

wikipedia says theanine raises serotonin, dopamine, glycine and gaba. it seems to vary individually, and maybe by dosage/diet, whether it raises or lowers serotonin. i got some suntheanine but idk if its worth trying now.

I’m blaming theanine for weak erections and weaker libido. For me, if I’m going to a social event, it’s great but doesn’t help for closing “deals”..

I think this one is staying on the shelf

What dosage regimen were you using. What mechanisms behind theanine would cause this

200-500mg once daily. I’ve taken it shortly before (an hour or two before intimacy) and have found that I don’t perform optimally during the course of the night. My last two engagements start off sup par. It’s only into the next morning that things start working again. Erections aren’t as full and it’s harder to maintain as well.

200mg is the max dose per day, i thought. I was thinking of doing 200mg suntheanine 3x a week but not sure

I think theanine is good for social outings or stressful events eg. exams; public speaking etc. I’m just going to avoid taking it on days when I know I’m going to be intimate.

Did you note improved digestion, anti histamine benefits. Supposedly its anti histamine and reduces gut serotonin

L-theanine --> GABA agonism --> Lowered cortisol --> Reduced hypersexual response
If I am getting reduced hypersexual response from peating in-general, what would you suggest I take / adopt?
The problem is that GABA-agonists also leave me low eenrgy, and I'struggling with energy.

I have both anxiety and low energy. What should I take to feel both energetic & relaxed?

I can't give medical advice, and that's a difficult question to answer. Hypothyroidism tends to increase anxiety and also symptoms of fatigue, bringing about a state of paralysis. Supplementing thyroid hormone would correct the deficiency, but some combinations of stimulants and depressants might have overlapping effects: progesterone in vitamin E administered together with sugared coffee, for instance. Higher dosages of aspirin have effects resembling that of low-dose fluoxetine (Prozac).
