So Allen, you said after a few days it went away? Hmmm. So maybe one could deal with a couple poor nights sleep in a row as a trade off for better rest down the line? I am curious to see if you start to sleep better on it Kevin.
For me it did, after almost a ~5 days. Around 3 days I was looking into dropping the zma or other alternatives by the time I thought about buying what Shaf mentioned here:

I was over it by weeks end. I've been taking ZMA pretty consistently now for a while now with no sleeplessness problems.

I actually enjoy them, in fact the stress relief provided by having absolutely super-lucid dreams (as I already was a lucid dreamer) and acting out scenarios in the sub-conscious has led my conscious to be much more laid back while I'm awake.

Valerian is a funny thing, it puts humans to sleep, and its like PCP for cats.

Has anyone ever tried this: http://www.tmuscle.com/portal_includ...s/blue/z12.jsp

I find that ZMA doesn't really help me either so I was considering this as an alternative.
