    No bad PTSD, Just from running crazy missions non stop at all kind of hrs, and only getting a little bit of sleep and food when we could. Shit 1 canteen of water and 2 MRE's per day kicking it in the dust.

    Re: Beasto will finally sleep tonight!!!!

    As a life-long insomniac (can relate re: combat issues) I tried melatonin with only mixed results off & on for years.

    Recently (am talking in the past two weeks) I tried something different that's been working pretty well for me. Been taking 100 Mg 5-HTP about 90 minutes before sleep (got this tip from a book called "The Mood Cure" which suggests a handful of different supps at different times of day for a variety of issues) along with 50 Mg Diphenhydramine (think 'Nytol') perhaps 30 minutes before sleep.

    I've found that this combo lets me fall asleep MUCH faster than without (think 'sleeping within 15 minutes of lying down) and although I've still been waking-up perhaps 2-3x per night this is MUCH improved over the 5-6x per night I had been experiencing and I'm able to get back to sleep right away.

    I tried upping the Diphenhydramine to 75Mg this past weekend just to see if I could achieve the long sought-after "8 hour hibernation" I've not experienced since high school but alas, same sleep pattern and a touch of grogginess upon awakening. The sweet spot for me seems to be the 50 Mg DH plus the 100 Mg 5-HTP. YMMV, but wanted to share what was working for me.

    Cheers and thanks for your service.

    No worries, Mate. Your experience with Melatonin is pretty much identical to my own. Some efficacy at first and quick adaptation. Perhaps "cycling" it (eg. 2 or 3 days on, 1 or 2 days off) could prevent this but for me the results weren't worth the hassle.

    Been on the 50 Mg Diphenhydramine + 100 Mg 5-HTP now for nearly a week. Good results, same as previously described. Still awake 2-3x each night but can easily get back to sleep and am actually sleeping up to my alarm each morning (which I've almost never done since I was a teen and dinosaurs walked the earth )

    Will monitor closely for the same kind of adaptation to the DH, but this tip was given to me by a mate who claims he's been using this dose for nearly ten years with no decrease in efficacy so I'm hopeful that I'll hold-up the same way.

    Cheers,

    Not to turn this into a log, but I thought I'd update that for me the 100 Mg 5-HTP an hour or so before sleep combined with 50 Mg Diphenhydramine is still doing the trick as well as it can be done in my case (without prescription sleep meds). I'm waking 2-3x per night (big improvement over before I started t his regimen) and getting back to sleep easier. Feeling more refreshed upon waking in the morning as well. Might work for another Sleepless Bro, so if you're a suffering Night Owl give it a shot.

    Cheers,

    5mg melatonin doesn't make me sleep (too many years of sleeping pills do that to you ... well me). Melatonin+Theanine works a little better but not on the long run.
