I took this at night and woke up after 3 hours of sleep and was up the rest of the night.  Not sure if that was the reason but wanted to ask those that use this if this has happened to you.

Taking it right before bed is a great time! People report it helps them sleep better. I have tried both the powder and the pills, both work great for me. Right now I am taking three of the pills before bed, and three in the morning first thing. 

You can read a couple of hundred reviews on iherb for the Neocell collagen. I dont recall anyone  saying they woke from it, so I am guessing it was something else that woke you.

I have the neoCell Collagen +C and I read somewhere to take 3 pills at bedtime...bottle says different though.  It doesn't cause me insomnia.

Baileybop, chocolate has caffeine so that could definitely do it!

Lorilyn, I have a friend who cut her Neocell collagen dose in half because her hair was growing like crazy. She was going to the hairdresser more often because of it.  I had a damaged thumbnail last fall and the whole nail grew out in three months! I suspect its doing good for my bones as well.

I'm thinking the chocolate might have had something to do with yr insomnia as well. I started taking the neocell collagen +c since Jan & have to say I am loving the results. Last week I bought a jar 350 tabs at costco for $18 and change which I thought was a good deal.

I have 2 big tubs of the Neocell powder, and really need to figure out a way to work it into my routine. It's supposed to be taken on an empty stomach. For those of you that use the powder, do you do it first thing in the AM?

dmf1971, when I first started over a year ago I obsessed about the best time of day! Now I just take it when my stomach is empty. Usually before bed at night or in the morning. But afternoon works too. One of the ladies who was taking it swore she could just take it with her food and still get the result, even though absorption isn't best then.

The costco pills are a great deal! here's some reviews:
