Sleep for growth?
I was wondering if anyone knew about how taking sleeping pills affects growth. I know muscles grow when you are sleeping, but how does taking sleeping pills play with that? Good, bad?
I mean, logically, I would think that it would hinder growth, because your metabolism more than likely slows down with the sleeping pills, but I am not sure if that is a good thing or bad. Please give your thoughts.

sleeping pills supress ur central nevous system i think, i wasnt aware that they altered ur metabolism, unless u are talking about stuff liek atavan or valium. if u mean simple stuff like gravol and melatonin (which keeps me awake) then i dont think they mess with ur growth. if ur young u should technically be able to sleep well. everynight 1 hr before bed i take 25 mg of gravol, not to put me to sleep, but to keep me asleep ! so i dont wake up after 6 or 7 hrs cause its a bitch to go back to bed !
