    Default Anyone else taking ZMA?

    Is anyone else taking ZMA? I have been taking this before bed as directed for the past four days. Every single night I have had very bad and violent dreams. Anyone else had this issue? I am sick of fighting clowns every night.

    Im actually suprised someone said something. I take a ZMA complex(Dymatize Z-Force) in cycles for a month and then off a month. Right now Im on it. Last night I swore some zombies were running down my hallway to my room. So I sat up in bed and threw my deoderant(I know retarded). Then I got out of bed and got into a fighting stance. After that, back to sleep. So you arent the only one bro

    I know it's the ZMA for sure. The nights I skipped or forgot to take it, no bad dreams. One of the reasons I took it was for the number of posts on BB.com raving about what great deep sleep they got with it. Geez! Who needs this crap!!!! What good is a deep sleep if you wake up with balled up fists, screaming, and are sweating like a fat girl writing her first love note?

    My wife said she was going to flush the ZMA. She was scared I was going to subconsciencely get her confused with one of the clowns I was beating the shit out of.

    What product (company) and what is the amount of Zn in it?

    Just curious. I've never taken a ZMA supp, but I have used straight-up zinc before. Never had the crazy dreams some of you report, but I did have some vivid dream for sure...

    This was 50-100 mg per night for 7-10 days.

    I assume you drink alot of water as any bodybuilder does. 90% of the time i have nightmares if from having to take a piss, been that way my whole life. My body is paralyzed but my mind is saying" YOU GOTTA WAKE UP AND PISS BRO" Maybe the ZMA is just amplifying that cause it prolongs the REM cycles in some way,

    LMFAO. dude this made me crack up for like 10 minutes. the funny thing is it's absolutely true. My dreams are NUTS when i'm on this junk. you don't even want to know the crazy shit i dream of. Mostly things that are Violent as heck. and then i can't even sleep. for an hour one night, i could swear this black dude was standin in my room lookin at me. and it felt like he gave me a roofie or somethin cuz i was half asleep and couldn't move. my eyes just kept opening a little bit. it was like i was paralyzed and hallucinating at the same time. and that was only one of the nightmares i had that night.

    I used ZMA for two months at a time a couple of times. It really helped me, because I wasn't sleeping well before; but, I never recall having bad dreams/ Most of the time I couldn't tell you if I dreamt at all with or without it. I actually woke up refreshed. I started feeling ultra-relaxed within 30 minutes.

    Sorry to hear about the bad dreams. Everybody reacts differently.

    btw - MOST ZMA supps have the same amount 30/450/10.5 - except for GNC - theirs is overpriced and weak.

    Just a train of thought - ZMA has the effect of relaxing you so that you can get a deeper sleep > during this deeper sleep your body produces GH > maybe it works so well that you're having a variation of "roid rage" while you sleep > sounds crazy, but... who knows.

    I would maybe see if taking 2 like DarkAngel said wuould help. The bottle I had said 2 for women, 3 for men. Maybe because of weight or need for more GH??? IMHO

    I had great sleep taking ZMA. The only drawback was that I could not take Casein Protein before sleeping, as you can't take calcium with ZMA
