    Get melatonin (3mg) and zma; take 30 minutes before bed. BTW, what time is your last Tren dose? That ****tail up there should help you get into your REM cycle faster; IE deep sleep.

    You could also take 6mg of melatonin before your workout and increase your GH levels. No, it shouldnt make you sleepy during the day, especially if there is light, but it has been proven that 6mg of melatonin before a workout will increase GH levels.

    When do u take your last dose of tren? Make sure it's nit too close to bedtime.

    But agree it's the tren. Had trouble when I was on it but would take last dose at around 5-6 and seemed to get better.

    Have you tried Melatonin yet?

    It usually comes in 3mg pills. Try one, and if that doesn't help try popping 2 of them. For me it's not the kind of thing that knocks you out cold, like Nyquil or something. It takes effect more slowly and helps me reach a really deep sleep, and I wake up feeling great. Pop a pill or two, lay down, clear your head, and relax.

    Also, I've noticed no signs of developing a dependency. Sometimes I'll take it every night for a couple weeks, and then if I don't take it for a couple days I still sleep just fine. Since it improves the quality of my sleep, I take it almost every night, but if I forget to take it or something it's no big deal.

    i do the complete opposite.. i pretty much only use benzos on cycle to improve my quality of sleep... i wake up feeling amazing.. my body is no longer sore, i get 10hrs quality deep rem sleep... and it really helps my body heal on cycle.. 2mg of xanax is not putting considerable strain on liver... think of ppl running methyls at 100mg.. i use melatonin too..i pop those like skittles..anytime i wake up in the night... ill wake up slam a chicken breast and take 6mg melatonin.. back to sleep for 3-4more hours quality sleep..

    That is weird. Benzos are notorious for interfering with sleep architecture, decreasing both deep (slow wave) and REM stages of sleep, while increasing light sleep. As far as muscle repair, that occurs during deep sleep, not REM. That's why non-benzo hypnotics (Ambien, Lunesta, Sonata) are prescribed for sleep. Only when they fail, doctors resort to benzos, usually tradozone. Ambien also has a negative impact on sleep quality, but not like the traditional benzos. Sonata is where it is at, because it is much less likely to interfere with % of time you spend in the various sleep stages. Plus it has a half life of like an hour so that's nice.

    I like to use 5-HTP, a precursor to serotonin which plays a huge role in triggering sleep in the midbrain and 1-carboxy to ensure quality sleep, and low dose Sonata to help me fall asleep. 5-HTP to increase REM and 1-carboxy for deep.

    trazodone is the only thing that really helps. I used klonopin for a while but benzo withdrawl is not pleasant. Ive had no sides from trazodone while on tren. You just feel like **** in the morn is all.

    Lower your tren dosages.

    Some people can go as high as 700 wk, God bless em.

    Anything above 500 is murder for me. 300-400 isnt as bad but the sweating is still pronounced.

    Ive stayed up many, many times for 36-48 hrs straight and then only slept for maybe 5-6 hrs, waking up every 2 hrs drenched.

    Just lower your dose and find your sweetspot. melatonin and herbs do NOTHING for sleep while on tren. at one point i was using 400 mgs of diphenhydramine stacked with doxylamine, phenibut and still waking up.

    get trazodone and lower your tren dose.

    I must be a mutant or something. Unlike most everyone I know, I never had any sides with tren; no insomnia, sweats, agression, or bp issues, even at 500mg/wk. Hell, I even took a physical for life insurance while on tren/test, with lab work and all, and everything came back normal.

    Passiflora extract definately relaxes me and helps me fall asleep. I feel SUPER groggy in the morning though

    I have that Zeo sleep thing that they advertise on the forum lol. It's sweet because I can take different drugs and herbs and see how they affect my sleep, with hard data to analyze. I've cut down on my light sleep and hae maximized my deep from baseline, cutting down on the amount of hours a night I need to feel refreshed. Kind of expensive though.

    Oh yeah, a good indica strain of MJ also does the trick

    Actually I've switched my dosing so that I take the last of it at 8PM and taken Melatonin.

    I think the combo of taking it earlier and the melatonin has done the trick, however I would put money on that just taking it earlier did the trick. The melatonin is most likely doing nothing as OTC never works for me, but good piece of mind.

    Just so you know, these idiots aren't talking about tren. They are talking about some stupid prohormone.

    Why they all call it tren I don't know.
