Falling Asleep?


Hello everyone,

I have the following problem. My MA classes are quite late in the day - from 9 p.m to 11 p.m. Because the classes are quite intense, I often have problems falling asleep before 1 or even 2 a.m. Since I have to be get up for work next day at 7 a.m. this is quite an issue.

It can be very frustrating feeling tired and not being to fall asleep immediately.

Are there any supplements that could help me with this?

Thanks in advance




I have the same problem. I don't get to the gym until about 9 so I'm pretty wired when I get home, and I too wake up at 6:45 the next morning. ZMA, melitonin, and this tea with a root extract(forgot what it's called but I've seen it mentioned around here before) are pretty good at knocking my ass out. Give that a try, if it doesn't work you might want to see a doc and maybe get something to help. I'm not sure if sleeping pills are all that great for you, but not getting sleep is not good either.
