No matter what I do or what time I go to bed, I always wake up at like 6-7am, and cannot go back to bed. I am so drowsy. What do I do? I can drink all night and I still wake up at 7am. I can fall right asleep but I cant stay asleep long. I have been averaging about 3-5 hours a day.

Melatinon. Get 3mg pills and take 6-9mg before bed and if you wake up. You will be in dream land.

Does that mess with your seratonin levels?

Did this start when you started your experiments with IGF?

Another vote for the Melatonin pills . I only take 3 mg nightly and sleep very well. I can only imagine what 6-9 mgs will do. It does mess with seratonin levels, but not in a bad way as it's natural.

If you can fall asleep whenever you want, but you have to wake up at 6-7, then go to bed earlier.

Supra would it be anything *outside* your body? eg;

Light coming through curtains
Noise outside
Is there a lot of electrical equipment in the bedroom
Is the room too cold/warm?

just a thought.

I would say answer levista's stuff on this, and try to relax some .... strange as it seems, but listen to classical, or nature music ..... even stuff like that Braveheart music, anything to RELAX you.

I WOULD NOT advise going down the sleeping tablet/herbal road , popping pills everynight .... its addictive and you'll end up thinking you NEED them to sleep...try alternatives first bud ..... I NEVER EVER sleep proper, I am like a fuckin zombie who sleeps when it can .... but to help me die temp , I listen to stuff like Braveheart, Last Of the Mohicans, Lord of the rings soundtracks ...... I get relaxed and off in nod before long.

goodluck

Room is dark, no noise and it is a good temp

I can go to sleep fast ok like yesraday I went to bed at 3am, and woke up a 7:30, that is only 4.5 hours of sleep, that is not enough at all.

Oh man. If I listen to that stuff it keeps me up. I LOVE that kind of music. Last of the Mohicans was a great score! One of my favorites was Gladiator. LOTR is also great.

Of course...I guess that's why I'm a Film Scoring major. :s

Hmm, One more suggestion you might want to try out ZMA, Zinc and Magnesium blend with some Vitamin B6 (if I recall correct). You can just buy the zinc, magnesium and b6 from the pharmacy. I've heard many cases where people aren't getting enough minerals/vitamins etc and they started taking zinc+magnesium supplements and were sleeping like babies.

Now I don't know if you're already taking vitamin/mineral supplements (I think you are, If you are a personal trainer? :))

Anyway, Good Luck :)
