Somnidren-GH + ZMK keeping me up
I just started taking Somnidren-GH and ZMk four nights ago and have noticed that I am unable to fall asleep for a fair while after taking them. I have been following the instructions, taking them on an empty stomach, I have tried 1 scoop and 1.5 scoops as I am over 200lbs. I didn't take either of them 2 nights ago and fell right asleep. Is this typical for the first few nights, or does anyone have any suggestions?

I have never heard of that happening at all actually. That seems very odd to me. At what time do you workout, and at what time is your last dose of any stimulants? If you do not take Stims...when is your last coffee, tea, or soda?
What is your definition of an empty stomach and what does your last meal usually consist of? Do you have any existing medical conditions that may relate to this issue in any way? These might be able to help me in assisting you a little bit, thanks!

Empty stomach is 2+ hours after eating. Yesterday I had a salad with a vinaigrette dressing at seven and some cottage cheese. My workout ran from 4:00-5:15pm. I have no existing medical conditions. The last stims i had yesterday were at 3:30 and it was a 2 scoop serving of jacked which is fairly normal for me. I didn't drink any tea, coffee or soda after that. I also take DCP about 2 hours before bed. And i went to bed around 11. I am on a low dose of antidepressants, but spoke with my doc and he said there should be no issue with the ingredients.

Thank you for the answers as that will help me greatly. Just one more question if you don't mind...
Did you take any other sleep aid products prior to this issue at all?

I have in the past take ambien, and venom lean dreams but it has been more than a few months since then. Oh and the anti-depressant i am on is 10mg of lexapro if that helps.

Lexapro alone has the side effect of insomnia without even bringing somnidren or zmk into the equation. How long have you been taking lexapro before you began running somnidren gh and zmk?
on the bottle for Somnidren we also recommend that it should not be taken in conjunction with any medication that is prescribed as an anti-depressant. As much as I dislike saying this since I know how great the product is...it might be in your best interest to discontinue the use of somnidren gh if you continue to feel restlessness that you would not regularly feel. Continue use of zmk and mvp365 (if you're using our multi)

I am using the multi and i love it so far. I was on lexapro for 2+ months pre somnidren so I dont think it is the lexapro. I will be off of the lexapro soon so I might just wait and see how i react when i get off of it.

That might be for the best. You don't want to be taking anything that could potentially cause you to have an adverse reaction to the prescription that you're taking.
I'm glad to hear you enjoy MVP so much...and I hope you continue to use ZMK as well. Please keep us updated on how it all works out!

the krebs cycle intermediates in ZMK may keep some people up a bit longer. also, the B vitamins and PEA in S-GH may give you a bit of stimulation the first couple times.
my advice would be to try a few days of S-GH solo and then try a few days of ZMK solo, keeping tabs on everything worth noting, and take the situation from there.

I tried some ZMK by itself and slept like a rock. I decided to try the gh with ZMK again and slept like a rock. I am extremely pleased with both combined and just started training again so I can't wait to see the differences in recovery.

I totally feel ya on the improved recovery. Just a few weeks ago I wasn't taking really any supps at all because I was going through a really tough time and to add taking pills and powders to the mix was simply too much for me. I could really tell the difference though between then and when I am taking zmk/somnidren regularly. It's really quite intense
Again, thank you for the endless support and feedback!

ZMK just put me right out when I tried a sample of it a few weeks ago,wish I could combine the two but the $$ is tight right now.

Hey everyone, I basically have the same problem. Last night was my first night taking Somnidren and ZMK. I dosed the Somnidren sublingually 2 hours after eating my last meal and I took 4 ZMK right before the Somnidren. It took me about 2 hours to finally get to sleep but I woke up only 3 hours later and couldn't get back to sleep. It was actually the worst sleep I've had in awhile. I expected to sleep much better with the addition of Somnidren and ZMK. I didn't expect it to worsen my sleep! So I'm a bit disappointed. Does anyone have any suggestions or should I just assume these products aren't for me? Thanks!

Some users within the first few nights will experience that Somnidren actually has an adverse effect and keeps you up. This is a by-standard of (and proof of) the fact that it is not a product that has any addictive properties. Keep using and within 3 days I guarantee you'll sleep like never before.
