    Trouble Sleeping on Prime?


    I've read lots of Prime logs where the users stated they had deep, restful sleep while using. I've only been on Prime for three days so far, but have had trouble staying asleep since starting it. I've always had trouble sleeping, so this isn't anything new to me, but I had been sleeping better with some supps I'm taking - 6 mg of melatonin along with ZMA. But even with these I am still waking up in the middle of the night since starting Prime.

    Perhaps it's something else thats causing this. Just curious as to whether anyone else has experienced this...

    6mg is an awful lot of melatonin... be careful as you can develop a dependency on melatonin. When do you dose your prime?

    I'm following the 69 protocol, so the last dose is with dinner, around 6:30PM.

    Yeah, 6 mg is high on the melatonin. I hate to do it, but I need my sleep. Prob already dependant on it, though I only take it during the work week as I don't need to get to bed early on the weekends...

    Hmm I'm using the 6/6/6 dosing schedule with prime...and when it hits it feels like a mild stim with euphoric alpha overtones. It doesn't help me sleep at all...but...when I take some GABA before bed I am down for the count till I wake up.

    i would just take one cap away from your dose from your last dosing and put it earlier in the day and see if that does anything.

    I would agree that 6 is a little much. You def. do not want to get dependent on melatonin.

    Do not dose in the evening. make afternoon meal/snack the last dosage point.

    I think Prime does help muscle recovery time on balance.

    There is no dependence on melatonin. I've checked that out with highly experienced users on Imminist.

    I do not feel that it will benefit you however.

    your body naturally makes melatonin. so if your constantly adding that much to your body daily, you will develop a dependence for it mentally, not physically... its like a pre workout. once you take a pre workout for 3 months then suddenly stop and do not taper off, you will have a crappy workout. why? because you have become dependent on it.

    PRIME should neither keep you awake nor disturb your sleep pattern.

    How are you faring now?

    It's the opposite for me: Prime did not affect my sleep in any way, but Powerful ruined it.

    Too many dreams and light sleep patterns with Powerful before bed. I woke up feeling more tired than the night before!

    Sleeping much better now. I moved my last dose of Prime to around 6:30-7 PM and that seems to be working well for me. Now that the sleep issue is resolved, things are much better, strength and mood are moving in a positive direction.
