Cool, all good schit- thanks y'all
I have been taking it for about a week and having some positive experience with it. I got the 250size 3mg @ 15$ I think. Take one in the evening awhile after dinner, or just before if its a late one. I spoke with a pharmacist about it, one night on a sleepless fit decided to take a ride over to a 24h CVS and chat with the 3rd shift guy about it, I figure he might know
I did this because I hate the fact that any sleeping pill is 12h (at least in my system it is), plus anything on the shelf is basically histamine and just kind of dulls me to sleep. I can get up from most stuff after 6-7 hours but it's like I live the rest of my day through flashbacks if I do, really weird. Oh yeah sorry, mildly habit forming too, that was my biggest gripe - use it once and the next day is 54 hours for me. Most nites If I lay down to go to bed I'll lay there all night, if I plunk down in front of the pc I never get tired, if I find the worlds most boring tv - I'll weld it into my mind until I can't bear to interpret Spanish anymore even if being nearly topless is acceptable on their channel. Eventually I hit "the end" and pass out due to boredom or something, typically 18 minutes before my alarm goes off....Which then blares until security, my gf calls, or the local FD shows up to shut it off. But needless to say sleep for me has never been a consistently occuring rigid scheduled thing for me (awesome when I was 15-25
) not so good now.
But like I said - been taking it ~7/8pm every night for the last week and have been amazed at how much better I sleep, how quicker I fall asleep and can get relaxed, how refreshed I am in the morning and how now an alarm actually has an effect on me. Pharmacist guy stated that as folks get older blah blah their bodies expend less melatonin and thus they sleep less, and highly stressfull lifestyles can promote this occuring faster..hmm.
I looked into it some before I came home and downed the "natural"(?) supplement, and seems for folks like me it might be the perfect thing. I have been oncall for the last 10 years, midstroke of this timeframe was working 12 hour days and being up 2-3-4 times a night on service calls and still making my 7am appt. the next day, well sometimes I did. Sadly that picture of the totalled Tacoma I posted awhile back maybe makes more sense now. I "learned my lesson" back then and changed alot of things after that incident to prevent this from happening but never quite beat it. Then some other crap happened and blah, now Im spilling my guts on the internet to a bunch of crazy people reading a post I almost titled Melonoma
But...schits just about regulation and I wanted to get views on it or those that do know of it/know of those that do etc. and make sure this wasn't some weird addictive drug/chemical etc. (like ephedrine would be on the inverse of the situation say). I appreciate all your feedback/inputs on the issue and you can all look forward to less 2am posts from me in the future
