If that is the main ill effect, I quit.
Do not even desire to know the minor ill effects.
If sleep decreases with age then I'm okay to sleep less.
Thank you Doctor. Always appreciated.

As a sleep aid, I take a 3mg. tablet nightly.
Are there any ill effects, or damage associated with continued usage of Melatonin?
Thanks.

I tryed baby wipes from my daughter's diaper bag once.
Now, it is all I ever use after the away rides/races.
Perfect for clean-up with no saddle sores or rash breakouts. VERY CHEAP!

Doc,
Thanks so much for the info and the prompt reply.

Hi Doc,

I mean really. What is the real reason?

Answering this question disolves alot of foreign matter that really doe ...

Paul,
As all of this started, I did not really train other than go out and ride as fast and as hard as I could for as long as I could. A few months went by and I seemed always sore. More time pas ...
