If one sleeps a whole lot one day, will he or she eventually get to a point where they've had 'enough' REM sleep, and so will then just remain in dreamless sleep until a long period of wakefulness 'resets' their cycles?
The reason for the question is that yesterday I slept late, and took 2 long naps during the day. Recalled dreams throughout all these periods. Was excited to try Galantamine and Choline for my first time to increase the vividness of dreams, and planned to do so that night. So I went to bed at my normal time, and slept for about 4 hours. Again, I recalled a couple dreams. Got up, took 4mg of Galantamine and 500mg of choline, and went back to bed. For the next 5 hours or so, I slept with absolutely no dreams whatsoever. Not even a fleeting image or emotion. Nothing.
It seems as if the pills actually KILLED my dreams and/or the recall thereof. Since this seems unlikely, given all the rave reviews of these pills I see, the explanation must lie elsewhere...
Is anyone aware of a "REM maximum?". Once a certain amount of REM sleep has been accumulated, does it stop/taper off? Will all/most further sleep be NREM?
I assume not, since I can find no reference to such a concept anywhere on the interwebz. But I can't find anything that specifically refutes this either.
