I just had another great night with LiGHts Out - I've gotten some much needed, restorative sleep thanks to this product. It's becoming one of my favorites in our line.

I like the nightmares !! I have to try lights out by iforce but Man - RemPM is real good and I've been using Ronnie Coleman's resurect -PM that stuff is legit . It tastes like cough syrup but it doesn't bother me at all.

I posted this in another thread:
Valerian Root, l-theanine, chamomile, passion flower, hops extract, even small doses of Benadryl. I would recommend melatonin but, people have a hard time properly cycling it. If to use it, say every other day or two weeks on melatonin and then two weeks off. Melatonin is a naturally produced hormone through the pineal gland and continued use will lead to delayed natural production, not good!
Not sure if any of the above will react in a negative way with you and bring on nightmares as everyone is different. I can tell you no problems here any time I use any of the sleep aids that I mentioned above.

Bulletproof from musclepharm was actually great! i had some good nights and the falling a sleep part was like a dream, would get lazy, tired, and then suddenly passed out. Next day i would be fresh n recovered, it has some bcaa in it too to help recovery.. and some GH boosting stuff, so that u get that edge too
sometimes these big brands MP - BSN actually make something worth taking.. this for me was a good one
if i consider that lights out only consists of two cheap, widely available ingredients i find the product too expensive for me though i dont doubt that its effective
I use now zma and now 5htp @5mg. I've found their brand to cost the least. More that 5mg 5htp gives me weird dreams and hard to wake up. If I need more sleep aid, I take some ketotifen or benadryl about 90 minutes before bed. Otherwise if later, I'm a zombie in the morning.
I tried Valerian but it had stim effects for me. I read some research after that that shows it can have this effect on some of the test subjects.
Alcohol is a poor choice because the body is busy breaking it down. You never reach the deepest sleep and when the alcohol is finished breaking down, blood sugar drops fast. After this, the body sends a spike of adrenaline which causes people to wake up or move up to the lightest level of sleep.
I can vouch for MusclePharm Bulletproof and Animal PM myself... Also I do things like trigger point/fascial release therapy to help get better blood flow and ultimately better sleep. Also I take cold showers post workout for blood flow as well. There's a tension or a stress that can sometimes hinder a good night of sleep.
Most important thing to do is improve your sleep hygiene. Perhaps look into getting a sleep study done on yourself. As far as supplements, melatonin or phenibut (but phenibut should be used sparingly).
Sorry to hear about your issues, I have similar ones myself.

I just tried gaba for the first time in a long time and it relaxed me plenty to get some great sleep. I was dreaming like crazy too so I know it was restful. I have had a lot of sleep issues since spending a few years in the middle east and I have taken sleep aids for a while now which most likely isn't healthy. But at least with gaba it is healthy and does the trick too.
I take a magnesium supplement with zinc in it, it puts me out. I've also found as a few people have mentioned above L-Theanine, I have used this regimen for a while and I wake up refreshed. I like melatonin in short burst say a week or so, but it made me groggy getting up, had brain fog for about the first 2 hours. I will occasionally throw some 5-htp in there or impatients flower or rock rose if needed.
