I think the best simple pre-bed combo is probably going to be around 200 mg's of 5-HTP (adjust this for your own body, some can do great with less, some may need just a smidgen more, I'm good with 200 mg's) + 250 mg's of Sensoril OR 940 mg's of the Solaray ashwagandha (I prefer the Solaray). If you need extra help falling to sleep, use a little phenibut or GABA and you're good to go. You could add in the Relora but I don't find it necessary.
Only thing out of all those that I mentioned which will need to be cycled is going to be the 5-HTP and the phenibut or GABA.

Which brings me to wonder why 5-HTP is in some pre-workout products if I recall. Seems counterproductive.

I'm guessing inclusion is for a "mood boost" or something along those lines. You'd probably more likely see something that is dopaminergic vs. serotonergic in a pre-workout I'd imagine

End of the day though, when you take a higher dose of 5-HTP, more likely than not, you'll feel something from that.

So I'm good to go with Eclectic Institute Rhodiola & Gaia Rhodiola?
One is ninety 500mg caps and the other is 60 caps with less mg...

It's weird, I tried so many combos and variations for sleep aid and could not get it quite right so that I slept deep, but still got up not groggy, and something that didn't require multiple things. I ended up finding this combo called Advanced Sleep Aid at vitamin shoppe. It's nothing sexy, but a perfect amount of everything to achieve what I need.
5-HTP, valerian, gaba, l-theanine, hops, and melatonin.

Its funny how life works, thought. After I divorced her, I really have been blessed.
Just being away from her is a blessing; one I am thankful for every day.
No, I suppose you cannot solve a challenge. I should have said, the combination allowed me to deal with the challenge, to the point that my night's became restful and, eventually, I no longer needed to rely on all three every night.
So, for me, it worked out well.
Most things do with the right attitude.

Not really. My wife likes it with a stack of St Johns Wort and bocapa. Takes the edge off, she says.
My anxiety stack that works wonders for me is:
aniracetam 750mg 2x day
alpha gpc 300 mg 2x day
agmatine 1g day
You may want to look into L-theanine which is great stuff and good for the day time. Until I created this stack that works for me, I went years trying to find things and l-theanine was a godsend, but after awhile, it made me a little dull. I am very sensitive to noots and adaptogens, so I had to back it off. Now I take it at night before bed.

Oh, well that isn't bad at all. I love carbs at night and will never give up my few IPAs during the week.
