    HGH and sleep

    Perhaps as collective we can answer some questions around sleep disorders/disruption and the use of HGH and it's possible enhancement of REM.

    I'll share my experience, please guys chime in with your own experience/problems and solutions.

    I live with chronic issues that wake me, this has gone on for many years and needless to say, my sleep is ****ed! The use of HGH for anti-aging purposes has not contributed to improvement of sleep patterns or staying asleep. I can testify my quality of sleep when I do sleep is a greatly improved. I dream now, my recovery is improved.

    How has GH or any drug or therapy helped your sleep disorder?

    Re: HGH and sleep

    IMO, gh has done nothing for my sleep.........only sleep good when I've gone days without good sleep.

    Re: HGH and sleep

    I mostly work nights so my sleep pattern is all messed up, I been using Rips for almost 5 months already, I'm pinning before bed and my sleep has improved tremendously, like u mention now I have dreams which I never had before, so my verdict is that the use of HGH has helped my sleep.

    Re: HGH and sleep

    While I do think GH can improve sleep for some people, possibly even most people, it has done nothing for me. Yes, I dream more intensely, but I sleep so deeply that my sleep apnea takes on a whole new persona. Instead of snoring loudly and interrupting breathing every so often, I now have choppy, short, wheezing breaths when I AM breathing, and LONG periods of no breathing at all. I don't feel more rested when I wake up than I used to, although I do think I recover more quickly. The vivid dreams are fun and intense, but I don't think I sleep any better.

    Once I get my CPAP and can take care of my sleep apnea, I expect to realize the full sleep benefits of GH.

    Re: HGH and sleep

    Great thread. I have personally experienced that I wake less frequently (on average 1-2 times per night) when on GH versus when not (5-6 times per night). Sleep quality is also improved: I sleep more deeply and fall asleep more rapidly when I do wake.

    Re: HGH and sleep

    i talk Temazepam (30mg) and 300mg of seroquel XR. I sleep, still wake up 3 times but this is the best and most potent sleep med stack ive ever taken. (well in my 9 yrs of sleep medications)


    really hopeful 2 IU will help me sleep deeper, and for longer periods of time.

    I have never use HGH. I would expect it to help deepen my sleep and make it more restful with all I have read about it.

    Re: HGH and sleep

    I also have had difficulty sleeping due to a mild sleep apnea condition. Since beginning GH three weeks ago (2 ius in AM on waking), I do find I sleep a little better, dream more vividly, toss and turn less, wake up more rested and my recovery is better. Slight changes mind you. However, My sleep is also deeper and I dont wake during the night except to go to the bathroom, so thats a plus for me. Not sure if I can attribute it to GH, but havent added anything else in that time. Curious to see what happens when I bump the dose next week to 3 ius (will be doing 2 ius in AM and 1 iu PM as recommended by several vets here). Hopefully sleep improvement will magnify.

    Is better sleep due to GH related to increased doses? Any thoughts...

    HGH and sleep

    I have been usin GH bout 5months and my wife reckons its making it harder for me to get me out of bed in the morning. I always wake in the middle of the night and so far GH hasn't stopped it yet(dam). So deeper sleep-yes. Longer uninterrupted-no. IMO

    SAD, if you get the CPAP sorted you won't know yourself. For me it wasn't easy, but sleep with CPAP is at least 50% more effective than sleep without. I don't go anywhere without it, even overnight.

    I'm hoping to get my HGH next week - I'll report back, because my biggest problem is sleeping.

    One suggestion/question: why don't you take it before bed? That's certainly what I'm planning, for these reasons.

    Edit: I've just read the other thread near this one, and though PFM is knowledgeable and advises differently I'm till going to be doing mine before sleep. But I'm a real old prick (61) so I'm unlikely to be producing much natty HGH.
