Is it normal to get terrible insomnia from taking an ECA? I had to stop because it got so bad and I wasn't getting enough rest to keep up with my workouts. Nightly+ didn't help much either.
I was only taking 2 pills (200mg caffine, 20mg ephedra) at about 9AM, but I couldn't sleep until 1-2 AM. This went on for over a week -- my body never seemed to adjust. I lowered the dose to 1 pill for a few days, which helped a little, but I still wasn't sleeping well.
I think it's the ephedra, because caffine has never had that effect on me. Right now, I drink a strong cup of black coffee every morning and I'm sleeping fine.
Anything I can do? This sucks becasue the ECA really helps (I'm cutting) but I simply can't get good sleep.
