Monday night, Feb 6th:
I arrived home from a long day of work and college classes at about 9pm. I checked the mail and was excited to see that the AgeForce Melatonin patches had arrived!
In the packet was 30 patches, an instruction card, an info sheet, and a personal welcome letter (that was a nice touch).
After reading through all the information, I decided to place the patch on my inner wrist as that was the least hairy spot on me out of the suggested places on the card.
Patch went on at 9:15pm
I then proceeded to eat my steak dinner, put my stuff away, and get ready for bed. It's now 9:55pm and I'm off to bed.

Subbed for this, sounds like you have insomnia man. I had it for about 5 years finally started getting good sleep when the doc hit me with a TCA. I'm interested in this patch.
Good luck, and sweet dreams haha

If you want to experiment with places to put them, a lot of people including myself have found that the top of the foot on a bare spot does the trick, and has the least chance of coming off partially during sleep.
Hope this stuff does the trick for you.

Results of last night's sleep:
As stated in the previous post, I went to bed at about 10pm. I fell asleep pretty quickly without tossing and turning which was good. I did wake up 4 times during the night though. I awoke at 11:40pm, 1:15am, 3:35am, and 5am. My alarm went off at 5:30am, and I struggled with getting out of bed for a bit. No real change to report yet.
The patch stayed on my wrist just fine all night. I'll try it on top of my foot tonight.

On my grind
You ever look into possibly having sleep apnea?
E-Pharm Rep... PM me with any questions or concerns

I agree, might be apnea since you are going to sleep, just waking up a lot. I have insomnia and the problem is getting to sleep or when I awake there is no chance of going back to sleep.

I have the same problem, I'm an extremely heavy sleeper, nothing really wakes me up as far as sound or moving. But, I will still wake up throughout the night. Looking to see what this patch does, if anything!

You could experiement with not eating just before bed, as in stop eating at least three hours before bed time, and four is better. IF people do this all the time. The worst is eating carbs before sleep, but even eating meat gives a huge insulin surge, and digestion slows way down while sleeping, and you lose almost all of your natural HGH as insulin surges block it'[s release. Eating carbs before bed will hold extra fat and make you groggy in morning, and the slow digestion of meat creates it's own problems. Both create a large insulin surge with the lack of HGH for recovery and fat loss during the night.

Most of what you said has been discredited for a long time.

The time in which I eat before bed changes with my schedule. On Monday and Wednesday, I have no choice as I have classes after work and don't get home til late. And it makes no difference on something like a Saturday night when I'm prone to staying up later and had dinner several hours earlier.

Today wasn't bad. No real extra energy. Lull in the afternoon had me falling asleep at my desk and microsleeping on my drive home.
I didn't workout tonight. Had some homework to finish up for tomorrow. (really, I was just feeling lazy and sore all over from being beat up all last week). So no workout means no caffeine today. I'm having my usual second wind though and feeling not tired at all right now. I slapped the patch on the top of my foot at about 8:45pm. 9:30pm and I'm headed for the bed!

Whatever, on diet and eating habits you can find "science" to back any position that makes you comfortable with what you are currently doing. If the melatonin patch doesn't work for you, try the PowerPatch and expect great results from the HGH for sleep, as that's what you actually need. I'm outta here.

Wednesday Morning report, Feb 8:
I passed out quick last night, and even though I still woke up a couple times during the night, I felt a lot better this morning. I didn't have my usual morning grogginess and I felt energetic enough to get out of bed before hitting my snooze alarm the usual 2-3 times. Perhaps it won't correct all of my sleeping problems if I do in fact have sleep apnea, but maybe it'll make the times inbetween me waking up actually more restful.
Only two nights so far. Still reserving judgement for later. But this morning was good.

I made it through most of the day yesterday without any tiredness. Started having a few lulls (one at about 10:45am, the second at 4:15pm) but quickly snapped out of them.
Last night, I got home from class and put the patch on top of my left foot (was right foot last night) at about 9pm. I then proceeded about my business of eating, prepping my stuff for the next day, and getting ready for bed. I finally got in bed about 10:30pm. I noticed as I was visiting the bathroom to empty my bladder for the last time before bed, that I felt a weird sensation kindof like I could instantly pass out while standing there. Must've been the patch forcing me to sleep, because I'm normally a night person and I get a second wind near bedtime. I passed out quick and easy. I woke up a few times throughout the night (as is usual for me). This morning was horrible getting out of bed. My alarm was going off and I was just ignoring it. I let it run for half an hour before I finally got up.
I'll say one thing I've definitely noticed since taking this patch. Falling asleep initially is a lot easier. I'm not tossing and turning for half an hour or more trying to get comfortable.

I slept over at my girlfriend's house last night. Normally it's even worse sleeping there because she likes a hard bed, so it's like sleeping on the floor. I put the patch on just before 10pm and we were ready to sleep around 10:30pm. I feel asleep nice and quickly.
She got a little frisky around 1am and attempted to wake me up. I was dead asleep. It took her awhile to wake me up, but the way she does it, I don't mind if she does it for awhile.
Slept real well last night. No trouble getting up this morning, then again, she doesn't let me lay around in bed either.

I put the patch on top of my right foot last night about 9:40pm. At 10pm I was down in bed. That didn't really leave a whole lot of time for it to kick in before I went to bed, and it was evident because I didn't immediately fall asleep like the previous nights. When I did fall asleep, I felt I slept a bit better and had no trouble at all waking up this morning.
