  1. looking for a sleep aid


    I am 21, just quit smoking and drinking cold turkey two months ago and ever since i cant get any sort of sleep. The sleep i do get is horrible. i feel like im going insane sometimes. I'm thinking about starting cigs again. Does anyone have any advice, know of a good sleep aid that is mild on side affects?


  2. I have a sleep issue as well, and its because I take NO shotgun later in the day to workout, which usually keeps me up... Recently (as in the last month or so) I have been taking ZMA and it seems to be helping me fall asleep/stay asleep...I have also in the past taken melatonine and that worked for as well...If you decide on the ZMA, take it 20 min before you lay down for sleep and do not drink any dairy products within 45-1hr of taking the product...I did this and the dairy and the ZMA mixed and upset my stomach... Goodluck, hope this helps and congrats on not smoking, dont give in and start again...

  3. zma is good to take regularly, a few that i have used that work good are these:
    Somnidren
    IBE x-Dream
    Scivation knockout
    Appnut Lipotrophin PM

  4. somnidren is #1
    ibe x-dream is #2
    i have used bolth and bolth work vary will.5 htp makes my drozy in the morning even after 8 hours.zma is so so

  5. ReductionPm is the best for sleep I tried so far. Cheap and help you stay lean.

  6. Melatonin and 5thp is what i would suggest.. you body is having to relearn how to fall asleep naturally.. and theses to products are safe to use. be careful using other sleep aid, because you will then start relying on them for sleep as well then you body then again has to learn how to fall asleep naturally..

  7. Agreed TEX A great solid sleep aid I have been taking has been 3mg pills of Melatonin. It is a great supp all natural and puts me to sleep in about 20 min. Its also a great antioxidant and cheap as hell bought mine off BB.com for like $2.00 best decision I ever made. Im in Army rotc and have to wake up at 5am every morn and on those nights I just cant to bed its the ticket and on training nights I give to my buddies and most of them love it too. Good Luck sleep is very very important as you know why not try and make it better!

  8. appreciate the input, i just bought a small jar of melatonin 3g tabs. gonna try one tonight.

    X2 ..... star off with a low dose and work your way up from there when useing Melatonin..

  10. stay away from melotonin. leads to lower test and sperm production in males

    I rec

    Appnut Lipotrophin PM

    the comp works wonders

  11. I use simply sleep and melatonin. It's so relaxing.

  12. Somnidren-gh great stuff

  13. Melatonin use / overuse can mess up your body's natural sleep pattern and can cause dependence.

    I usually don't have much problem getting to sleep but ZMA has helped with deeper sleep. On a good night I get about 6-7 hrs, but usually 5-7. The improved quality has helped a lot.

  14. Doxylamine succinate is a member of the ethanolamine class of antihistamines and has anti-allergy power superior to almost every other antihistamine on the market, with the exception of diphenhydramine (Benadryl). It is also the most effective over-the-counter sedative available in the United States, and is more sedating than some prescription hypnotics. One study found that doxylamine succinate is possibly more effective than the barbiturate phenobarbital for use as a sedative.

    This is the active in Nyquill, and unisom tabs (not gel caps). Wallyworld sells the generic for 4 bucks a box, of 32 25mg tabs. Very effective sedative similar to benadryl. Trauma turned me on about a year ago to it. Love the stuff.
    The LORD is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety.-Psalm 18:2

  15. Ones I liked:
    ZMA
    1-carboxy
    Somindren
    CL Reduction PM

    The main thing you are facing is nicotene withdrawl. Never smoked but I imagine its no joke. I suspect a sort of depression kicks in but its just a guess. If you quit now good investiment for the future.

    Recommend you visit you practioner. There's a few things that can come into play here, I'd try a combination of things to try and beat it.

    3mg melatonin is only for serious insomnia try 1mg or 0.5mg.

  17. how did the mel. work for you?

  18. You could try "Delta Sleep Inducing Peptide" if you are having serious problems falling asleep. It can be found at research chem websites and perhaps other places as well. It is oral I believe as it is absorbed by the gut.

  19. I find that ZMA with Lean Dreams work great for getting a deep rejuvenating sleep.

  20. Stack X-Dream by IBE and ZMK by MST..


    you'll be like a baby in no time !

  21. I went to cvs n purchased 500 store brand tylenol pm for 18 bux and I also ordered animal pm.

    Tylenol pm is great to help you go to sleep while having sore body parts.

  22. Yeah, because taking chronic tylenol to help you fall asleep is such a great idea.

    I took melatonin when i got jet-leg or when I have to get enough sleep on a cross-ocean plane (you know it can be impossible if you are in economic class). Otherwise I don't use it.

    If it's Nicotine withdrawl, then the most effective way is to get some Nicotine gum/tablet.

  26. Yes, very relaxing and you sleep good. No hangover feelings, you feel well rested in the morning. It is tea, its easy to make, but for some they may not be used to it.
