Can GABA be taken for anxiety?

I would like to take a natural supplement like GABA for my anxiety instead of taking Xanax which I have read is quickly habit forming. I have tried a number of doctor prescribed anti-depressants but can’t tolerate them. I am also on Warfarin for a genetic blood condition.
