    Yes. Sometimes I double-dose NeoVar Recomped at night pre-bed; which is when I also dose Lipotrophin-PM.

    However, given the timing of the dosing required for each product, they generally would NOT be dosed together: Lipotrophin-PM only needs to be dosed once daily (and this is usually last thing at night), but can also be dosed first thing in the morning; and NeoVar Recomped should be dosed post-resistance/anaerobic training, and 15-20 minutes prior to a meal (preferably containing at least 50g of carbohydrates).

    It's 75% - all of them are the same.

  6. Thanks for the quick reply, I was under the impression that lipotrophin was 25% and HGHup 75% (at least thats what most of the websites say). So, what s the difference in terms of mucuna quantities in these two products? Does HGHup contain more (per capsule)? For restfull sleep and fat loss purposes which one would you choose? Thank you in advance!

    If you read the ingredient profiles, then you can see the % of L-Dopa used - don't believe everything you read, unless it is on the product in front of you. Both Lipotrophin-Pm and HGHup♂ contain Mucuna Pruriens standardized to 75% L-Dopa. Because each product is a proprietary blend, I cannot tell you specific quantites of Mucuna Pruriens in each - but take a look at the ingredient profiles of each closely.

    Lipotrophin-PM and HGHup♂ are two VERY DIFFERENT products - you can tell this, simply by reading about each product - and cannot be compared. Both work well for improving sleep and fat loss, so you could use either.

    As you already know, Lipotrophin-PM is a STAPLE for me - but I use it for the deeper, better quality sleep, and not for fat burning.

  8. What is the max dose/day? This product reminds me of camphabolic from USP, and I took it during the day and at night. I have 1 bottle. I plan to take 3/night (200 lbs). Can I also take 3 mid-morning? about 1 hr after and 2 hrs before food?

    Lipotrophin-PM only needs to be dosed ONCE daily: pre-bed - with the heaviest bodyweight dosing at 3 caps. You could take 3 caps in the morning if you like, but it's really not necessary, and if you DO dose in the morning, I would recommend having only 1-2 caps. Re maximum dosage, I definitely do not recommend exceeding 6 caps daily.

  10. Is the L-Dopa in Lipotrophin pm enough to block or reduce Prolactin?

    That would be nice.

  13. 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.

  24. 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.

  27. 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.

  28. Is it a good idea to Take 100mg of 5-HTP with Lipotrophin-PM?

    I've used 50 to 100, sometimes with valerian in it as well, no issues for me. I live 5htp at bed time.. Lipo pm is good stuff

    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
