    Poor Sleep in DNP

    I think this is the most common and most hateful side effect in DNP users.There are 3 reasons for this to hapen: 1 Excessive sweating. 2 Excess stimulants to maintain productivity, cardio and train. 3 The increase of cortisol due to the caloric deficit can promote wakefulness, a survival mechanism to wake up your butt to go eat. Unfortunately there is no solution for this annoying effect unless you want to run drugs to sleep, which I advise against. Melatonin can't help much.

    Hmm, yes all true. What’s this about though? I’ve used sleeping aids during dnp runs

    helped somewhat but still woke up just because of being drenched

    Factually inaccurate. The most hated side effects would be death, peripheral neuropathy, cataracts, allergic reactions (hives, rash, etc), and a whole bunch of other stuff.

    When you really start to dig into DNP and understand what it is, the compromised sleep quality is going to be very low on your list of concerns. And I say that as an avid, yearly, user of it.

    Nicely put, I’ve given up on it really. Feel much better on Clen or eca

    it works VERY well though.. that’s factually accurate

    It is simply a more powerful drug than the usual supplements or tricks you can use to sleep. Clem is horrible for the heart heath, ECA is much less effective than DNP. And both also tend to cause insomnia.

    You don't understand what the word common means or just love your role as a preacher? 99% of users will experience none of these problems.

    I think he was just trying to put things into perspective.

    If we had to wager on who has done the most research on the topic, or any other topic, my money is on rippedzilla.

    Factually inaccurate. Peripheral neuropathy was documented for 3-4% of users in the 1920/30s data but jumped up to between 10-20% since DNP became fashionable again over the past few decades. Suggesting an inability to diagnose it accurately 100 years, which is understandable. The same goes for allergic reactions - 7% occurrence rate in the old data, jumps up to 10-20% with the new cases added in. The incidence rate for both of these sides is high enough to be the most serious concern for DNP users. It puts the complaints about lack of sleep, sweating too much, etc into perspective - as dk said.

    Also, you said this in your op:

    Forgive me for not bringing it up earlier but this too is factually inaccurate. The lack of sleep that comes with dieting is due primarily to a depletion of serotonin and an imbalance between dopamine & serotonin levels. That's why melatonin is useful for some dieters - it boots serotonin. It has very little to do with cortisol.

    Oh and if you consider me a preacher for trying to educate people about a drug I know a fair bit about then I'll gladly accept that title

    Little known fact: DNP was used in munitions by the Brits and others during the great wars and is highly explosive. You might end up on a terrorist watch list if you’re buying in large bulk...

    Zquill can be of help, provided your sleeping under the right circumstances (fan + AC) and drinking a good amount of cold water at your bedside.

    99% did not pretend to be an exact data, I thought that anyone would understand it. Also, the percentages you mention are impossible to verify because no one is doing a study on all DNP users and their possible reactions. The supposed increase in problems with reactions and neuropathy is not clear, in the first, nobody knows what is taking since DNP is not a control substance and can be contaminated. Secondly, there are many paranoids who, after reading about NP, believe that they are obtaining it, but in a cut diet there are different factors that can cause effects similar to NP. Third, the total number of people allergic to anything food or substance seems to increase every year. Again, the most common and annoying side effect is poor or poor quality sleep, anyone with neuropathy or other allergic reactions, even people who die from overdoses, will have a horrible sleep. Among people without other side effects, hunger, excessive sweating, and lack of sleep are reported (in boards, etc) as the most common side effects.

    The goal of this thread was to talk about poor quality or lack of sleep, not about other problems.

    There are many people who have become experts in recent years because DNP is no longer a taboo substance (outside of Bb contest circles). At no time am I doubting his knowledge or investigation, but his attitude is annoying, since, once again, the goal is to talk about poor quality or lack of sleep, I think the thread title is enough clear. If he wants to alert to more serious problems, he can do in other threads. I will be happy to review.

    Sleep is going to suck. Don't spike your sugars before bed. Utilize fans and AC.
