Night #2 Before bed I took 3 5mg melatonin, 100mg b6, and 4 calea z tabs 4 hours later.
I don't know if these supplements are a bad pair or what... I've had terrible dream recall the past two days, it was like I didn't even dream at all until this morning 40 minutes after I woke up I remembered I did have a dream (more of a nightmare but those don't really effect me)
I have had a good ratio of LDs with melatonin alone. I think b6 and calea z are out if my regiment for a few days until I feel like experimenting with them again.
I'm having really bad recall.. It's better without supplements but does anyone know why this is?
I was thinking throughout the day taking a supp with choline bitartrate, dmae, and ginkgo biloba for mental clarity and memory function. Thoughts?

Too much melotonin. First of all, 5-HTP is more efficient then melotonin and they both do the same job dream wise. Second, melotonin gives you dreams, by keeping you in deep sleep longer, but then in the second half of the night, you experience REM rebound because the first half of the night was all spent in deep sleep. However, you start takeing all that melotonin and you'll be in deep sleep too long. And I know why you had a nightmare, your building too high levels of certain chemicals in your brain. It's actually hurting your dream recall and giving you unpleaseant dreams. I say stop taking ALL supplements for now. Then go order Advanced Lucid Dreaming: the power of supplements.
Also note, calea is not a supplement, it is an herb and thus completely in it's own category. You should really take calea after 5 hours of sleep not before bed. Same with the B6. But like I said, you should discontinue all supplement use for now Intill you are better educated and why they do what they do, and how they do what they do. It will make you far more effiecient, powerful, and safer.
