Been using Test Prop and Anavar for the last 3 weeks and my sleep has just started being affected. What does anyone suggest, apart from getting meds from the doc.
Have you tried melatonin, L-theanine or any of the OTC styles of sleep aids such as Valerian root, Kava etc?
Thanks, yes I'm using L-theanine, valerian root and magnesium. I'll try melatonin tonight too.
Out of interest, if I'm using 100 mg of Anavar a day, will taking the second dose after 6pm affect sleep at all?
I've found that I'm very sensitive to anabolics and I'm wondering if the time I take the dose could be causing the problem? Just thinking out loud!
Are you doing any cardio?
I rarely sleep so I might not be the one to chime in on this but.......
When on Anavar I would move my workout to the evenings this seems to make a big difference with me.
I do not take any prescription meds at all, but have in the past has alot of luck with melatonin... You can increase your intake over the next week and find an amount that helps.... Melatonin will give you a much more natural sleep cycle and not leave you feeling hungover in the morning...
Have you tried the peptide dsip (delta sleep inducing peptide)?
what are the issues your having?? night sweats? getting up to pee a lot? tossing and turning? snoring? -----ya i get all of those too---welcome to the brotherhood
Many guys say test ****s up their sleep more than tren. We're all different. Melatonin which was already said helps some guys...benadryl isn't habit forming either.....WARM MILK.
I have read (don't remember where) that high test levels can cause sleep apnea. If that's true, it would explain many issues with sleep cycles being interrupted.
My sleep seems to come and go and I haven't seen a patter as far as any compounds affecting it, even tren. I have found many things that help. Melatonin, zma, and gaba are some that are commonly available. Also, ghrp/mod-grf works very well to get into a deep, restful sleep. One thing that works very well is phenibut. It is basically gaba that's modified to pass through the blood/brain barrier. It is available otc and often used to treat anxiety and promote relaxation. It works extremely well in conjunction with gaba and 5-htp. It can, however lead to some dependence issues if not used sparingly. I would suggest using it a few days at a time to establish a good sleep cycle.
I use 15mg of Melatonin myself maybe 2-3 times a week. Its important to get that good deep REM sleep if you can, remember we dont grow in the gym, we grow when we sleep. Good luck.
I forgot to add catnip tea to the list. Go to the pet store and buy yourself some organic catnip.... yes, the same stuff you use to turn your cat into Tyrone Biggums. Put about 1tsp into a strainer or tea ball, brew it and drink. This stuff damn near puts me in a coma, but doesn't make me feel groggy in the morning. I wake up feeling great and rested. I have noticed though, that it doesn't seem to work well if used 2 days in a row. I'm not sure why, but I've tried it a few times and it never works on day 2. I usually save this as my ace up my sleeve for when I absolutely HAVE to sleep.
Spank your monkey before bedtime... that will help you get some rest.
