I have been taking Lecithin for aprox. 30 days now. About 3 weeks ago, I started having problems sleeping. Not stressing or worrying about anything in particular, I am tired, but I lie there completely awake. I read that they sometimes use lecithin for neurological disorders as well, ie memory. I've been taking it for my cholesterol. I am on anti depressants. Is it possible then that these two would work against each other, and give me sleepless nights? It's like I explained to my husband when he asked me what's bugging me to the degree that I can't sleep, "it's nothing specific, I just can't stop thinking, I can't get my brain to shut up for long enough that I can sleep" Not like voices in my head, just thoughts, continuous flowing thoughts. Night before last I had my first decent sleep of more than 3 hours. The only difference was that night was, I had two drinks. Yesterday I was working in the garden all day, I gave myself a slight case of heat exhaustion, but it was over quick enough, with some proper liquid intake and just cooling down and taking a break. Thing is, I was literally exhausted last night, and thought that I would have a great night's rest at least. No such luck, I finally fell asleep around 7:45 AM when everybody was waking up, I slept for about 3 hours and now I'm here, up and about, tired, but wide awake at the same time. Please help.
Can Lecithin make me insomniac?

Oh dear I. Thought lecithin was supposed to help induce sleep and help mania??? That's what I read so I bought some.
How did you go with your sleep? Sounds just like me for about the last 7 years. I used to sleep all night every night and during the day if needed. Now I’m all over the place just like you said above. I’ve tried everything to try and get to sleep. I can go for weeks back to good sleeping then all of a sudden it starts again. I bought lecithin today thinking it may help me but now I’m not going to try it.
