    I just started taking ProEnergy and ZMA 2 days ago. I know that's really soon to start complaining, but the past 2 nights I almost feel like I'm hyperactive! I've never been a great sleeper (suffered insomnia for the past 4 yrs)but I find myself tired all day, then at bed time I sleep for an hour or so then I'm wide awake and my mind is racing.

    Does this happen to anyone else?

    I've taken the ZMA about a half-hour before bed and the ProEnergy in the a.m. then again just b4 bed. Is that how those of you who've used this successfully do it?

    Open to suggestions...

    The very first night I took ZMA, I was hyper too. I don't know if it was just 'me' being skeptical (as I am a critic sometimes), or if the reaction I had was for real.

    But I decided to give it another try. I started taking it at 10pm, then right before I go to bed(about 12 midnight) I take a 3 milligram of Melatonin.
    I have been sleeping so wonderfully, that sometimes I don't wake up for a bathroom run, and have a stomach ache in the morning.

    As for the Pro Energy, I take them before breakfast(with a glass of water), then before lunch(with a glass of water). Its best to spread the magnesium out through the day if you can.

    It took the ZMA about ten days before I got the benefits of it.

    As for the Pro Energy, I have been taking that for about two years now. Between the two, my pain level is way down, and I rarely have spasms anymore. Plus with the ZMA I am sleeping at the least; 7-8 hours deeply per night.

    Give it a little more time, and see what happens. Try taking the ZMA earlier like I do.

    What could be the problem, is that your system is reacting to the magnesium. I think that could have been my problem
    too. Most of us are so deficient that our bodies must go wack-o when it gets a dose of something we are depelted of!

    HOpe this helps, and I sincerely hope this works for you like it has for me. My whole life has changed with a good nights sleep!

    Shalom, Shirl
