    Is it better to take an anti-depressant like Zoloft at night with the Lipo-Pm? (Since Dopamine is being released), or should I take Zoloft earlier during the day? I started taking Lipo-PM two days ago, but have been on Zoloft for about two months now.

    I'm just trying to figure out why I keep waking up around midnight and then having the hardest time falling back to sleep... sometimes hours.

    Although I do feel well rested and full of energy in the morning.

    Any advice would be most appreciated

    If you are using Zoloft - regardless of when you are dosing it - you should NOT be using Lipotrophin-PM (or anything else with L-Dopa in)!

    Thanks for letting me know Rosie! Is it because of the serotonin?

    No worries No, it is not because of the serotonin, but the the L-Dopa (as mentioned) - the L-Dopa can increase the potential for harsh side effects of Zoloft.

    Curious to your reasoning to this Rosie

    Zoloft is a SSRI which can deplete dopamine, serotonin and/or catecholamine. Mucuna can help towards balancing the neurotransmitters and increase dopamine.

    Interested to hear you reasoning Rosie, I must be misunderstanding something or overlooking something here because I see no reason why the two can't be taken together.

    But I would tend to agree with you and not mix pharma medications with herbal supplementation without first consulting my psychian.

    Re post #46: "L-Dopa can increase the potential for harsh side effects of Zoloft." To explain this, L-Dopa can counteract against Zoloft and vice versa, creating side effects which have not yet been studied, and this recommendation is made as a precaution because of the uncertainty of stacking them, with the individual's health and well-being in mind. That said, ANY time you're dealing with chemicals that affect the brain, you should ALWAYS err on the side of caution, IMO.

    It's a good thing I decided to ask about this. I'm taking zoloft as a trial from my physician to see if it helps with mild depression, but I didn't feel any better. Sleep on the other hand and natural GH release is way more important for my longterm goals!

    If I decide with my physician discontinue Zoloft, would it be fine to take Lipotrophin-PM even throughout bulking PH cycles?

    If you're NOT using Zoloft you're fine using Lipotrophin-PM, even if using hormonals.

    Can you take Lipotrophin-PM with Melatonin? The reason I'm asking is because I've been having a hard time falling asleep lately with Lipo-PM alone, usually takes me about 2 hours lying in bed until I manage to fall asleep. So I tried taking melatonin last night and I basically stayed up the whole night... and got fed up and eventually just got out of bed at 3am and went for a HIIT sprint.

    Should I toss the melatonin?

    You can, but you don't have to. I recommend dosing your Lipotrophin-PM anywhere from ~2 hours before or right before you go to bed - I have done both ways and now do immediately pre-bed, and that gives me the best effects re sleep.

    hmm, or perhaps it can be the Alpha-T2 that I started taking 3 days ago. Or I might've just had a bad night.

    You can, its not necessity but it could help your sleep. I used to take 3g about an hour before bed when I worked night shift to try and alter my circadian cycle. If you do, cycle on/off just as you would anything else. I would think something with 3,3diiodothyronine, rawoulscine HCL, and methylsynephrine are more likely to be keeping you up at night.

    Nice, thanks for the info. I benefit greatly from Lipo-Pm, deeper sleep, more energy the next day. But I still find it difficult falling asleep most nights. I'll see how the combination of Lipo-PM and 5-HTP works

    Same, relaxing NEVER comes easy for me.. I also stacked it with ai sports 3z for a month- sh!t knocks you out but doesn't have leaning agents, hence reason for stacking with lipo pm..
