Likely: Nearly all sleep aids affect one's natural sleep cycle- some more than others. Having insomnia is the least of your worry if you are on high dose testosterone. It is time for you to stop trading the future of your health with short-term gratification on your muscle mass. At the least, you will end up with pimples and shrunken balls.
