I am a 74 years old 100 pounds female. I have had difficulty with falling and staying asleep for several years and have taken various 'natural,' OTC sleep aids with little success. Over past 2 yrs have been taking 1 mg Clonazepam (Klonopin) 2 hrs before bed. It worked well for the first year. Now I'm grasping for any relief. I took myself off the Clonazepam and suddenly had a panic attack while driving, so went back on. Panic attacks gone, sleep still an issue. I wonder if I would be best with Kavinace or Trava Cor as I wean myself off of Clonazepan? I loathe taking any pharmaceutics. Am open to suggestions. Not sleeping is ruining my life.
Sleep issues tend to be far too common. Our most popular supplements for helping with sleep is a combination of Travacor and Kavinace. Typical doses are generally 1-2 Travacor with 1-4 Kavinace. I would start with one of each and experiment with different combinations. Some people do best with a combination of Kavinace and Kavinace PM but we generally recommend starting with basic Kavinace. Most people can wean themselves off the pharmaceuticals fairly quickly. If you are still having problems after a couple of weeks, give us a call and we can help troubleshoot so you can get the sleep you need.

I have been taking kavinace for over a year now, literally can not sleep without it. However, I suffer from depression year round, but even more so in the winter. Would travacor be a good fit for me? Is it taken in the morning or at night?
Travacor supports serotonin so it could be very helpful. I would start with two in the evening about one hour before bed.

I am 3 months post partum. Am I able to breast feed while taking this? I took DHA and 5HTP during my pregnancy and would like to continue that regiment but would like to add this supplement.
You could continue with the DHA and should but I would talk to your doctor about the Travacor. It does have 5HTP in it which does cross the blood brain barrier.

I am currently using the balance D with excellent results, would it be advisable to add the Travacor for general low energy level? is this contraindicated? thank you.
Travacor is really for serotonin support and would help with things like sleep and anxiety. I might recommend instead, Adrecor which is targeting adrenal support, this product would influence your energy more directly.

I take one travacor (120 lbs - body weight). Also use progesterone 1/4 tsp topical. I'd like to get off the Ativan -1/2 mg to 1 mg - I take for sleep, if I take Travaocore in the day I think it would make me sleepy. What do u think about taking 2 travacor at H.S.? AND I read that Ca++ interferes with zinc, should I t aek the Ca++ Mg++ suppliment at another time?
You might want to try a little Kavinace at night with the Travacor. This can really help with sleep. You can start with 2 before bed. You can take Travacor in the day. It should not make you sleepy, but I would try the Kavinace first. http://www.ovitaminpro.com/kavinace120.html
Calcium can also interfere with magnesium, although magnesium will help calcium. I usually have people take their Cal-Mag supplement in the morning and take just a magnesium at night on an empty stomach. You might take your zinc away from the calcium as well.
