When should I cycle creatine?

That isn't the creatine. To my knowledge, creatine isn't a CNS stimulant. How close do you exercise to bed? How intense are you? Do you take other supplements? Those all play a role.
Also, if your protein powder includes creatine, you can drop the extra supplementation. You're just flushing money down the toilet (literally).

Do you drink caffeine or take any other stimulants? You could be exciting your nervous system to the point that you require an extended period to calm down. It happens. The athletes we work with (sliding sports) require prescription sleep meds some nights, as driving down a complex track at 60+mph definitely fires up the nervous system. That may or may not be what you're experiencing (high neurological stimulation, that is), but stimulants and intense exercise are the two culprits that come to mind first.

Consistency is important. With my schedule, I have no consistency so I tend to nap. Nothing wrong with them, in fact 20-30 minutes can be beneficial. Now if it's a couple hours, that could do it too.Originally Posted by DerickVonD
