Well, here it is, more than a week later and my great joy for vit E and sleep has worn out! It is not the magic pill I thought it was the first night, as I did not reap the magic sleep benefits from it the nights to follow. back to my old habits. :( however, I still take the vit E as I believe it has helped relieve my ovarian cyst/pain along with dietary changes(a great thing). So as with many otc supplements or drugs, my system builds a tolerance to them for sleep quickly and end up not working in the way it ideally should. I have had some success with ER Niacin 500mg at night, and even better 500mg in the afternoon too and dinner time. Its great for anxiety too. Its just that I read that its very bad for the liver long term. ** sigh**... so what I have done quite frequently is when I go to sleep(w/out any meds or niacin) I get my 5.5hours and awaken. I will take part of a choline/inositol supplement, and will get another hour or two of sleep(providing I am not anxious over something). Expect vivid dreaming as one of those vitamins encourage REM sleep. So its not the greatest way to get the sleep in, but its the best I can do, without going on RX, and still I wake early with that junk too and have a hangover!
