You could probably save your money w/ something like BCAA or casien protien, maybe?"I am legally blind and if I can Squat,deadlift and over all get myself to the gym then anyone can get their a$$ in gear and get strong!!" - malleus25

I think I have the same problem. 11-OXO worked great for me once I started taking the largest dose [4 caps] before bed. I can't predict how fast and how well it will work for you. Give it a shot, vary the dose, and see how it works.

why not try a non hormonal/ph cort blocker like lean extreme or retain2. yes, they are probably a little milder but i think it would work well if you bump the dosage up a little.

i believe the cort blocker in retain2 is the most effective aside from something along the line of 11 oxo. perhaps double the dosage and i think it would work great.

I read that 11-Oxo doesnt mess with serum cortisol level.
so you might want to try retain2 or Blaze from SAN

Retain 2 was great when i used it three times. I lost weight though in ab area. I have never heard of cortisol spiking at night most of the time its early afternooon, mid-day, postWO, other stress situations.
Id say try Retain2 regular dose week 1, double it from there if need be.
Why not just try a relaxant? GABA, SomnidrenGH, Phenibut, etc...
Either way best of luck.
PS-Cortisol is a very important hormone in the body, while you want to limit it, over supressing it can cause issues.

the 11-keto-testosterone and 11-hydroxy-testosterone metabolites of 11-oxo are going to be suppressive to your natural testosterone levels. So you're lowering anabolic potential by increasing anti-catabolic potential.
I'd recommend taking a forskolin-based product before bed instead. Forskolin will not only lower the catabolic effect of cortisol, but increase testosterone levels as well.
