Insomnia With AAS

I am currently 3 weeks into my first cycle which is:

WEEK 1- 12 TEST E 200MGS E5D
WEEK 1-4 DBOL 45 MG
WEEK 9-12 DBOL 45 MG
WEEK 1 - 12 ADEX 0.5 MG EOD
WEEK 15-17 NOLVADEX 40MG ED

I have increased my calorie intake and training, the only supps I am taking is:

Amino’s
multivit
fish oils

for the last 2 nights I have really had trouble sleeping, any recomendations to aid with sleep? I can’t really afford any ZMA at the moment unfortunately otherwise I would try that

Cheers

I take melatonin and ZMA before bed.

Haha Nice one cheers, don’t know if you have read that thread, but I have an active involvement in it aslready cheers!

by the way that method is not helping! :slight_smile:

You’ll find that it’ll ease off soon. I always get insomnia at the start of my cycles. I’ve heard that ZMA really does help, but I’ve never got round to trying it.

What company do you buy your melatonin from?

I’m was using a product called REM-R3G and it works very well. At firt I it seemed to not only put me in a deeper state of sleep but also make me fall asleep more quickly. After being on it for a little over a month or so I noticed I could stay away on it if I wanted to but felt VERY relaxed. The only thing that could snap me out of it was sex, but then I’d fall alseep right after that anyway. Still I stopped taking if for about 1-2 weeks not and plan on starting back up when my trensomnia kicks in which should be in another 2 weeks or so. If I get it.

I’ll let you know how it goes, when my sleep becomes an issue that requires I use it.

Viatmin World. It’s called “Super Snooze with Melatonin”. Works really well.
