Take all medications as prescribed. This test can be done either fasting or non-fasting. In general, to assess effects of diet and supplements the test is best done non-fasting and often those adding supplements into their daily regimen have slightly high values as a result of supplementation.

Either way works, it is just important the medical reviewer knows if the results were fasting or non-fasting.
Note: This test should not be used to assess GABA levels from supplementation.
