Can Red Yeast Rice Cause Insomnia?
Question: I started taking red yeast rice and soon after developed insomnia. Could my red yeast rice supplement be the problem?
Answer: As discussed in the Red Yeast Rice Supplements Review, red yeast rice could potentially cause difficulty sleeping in some people — although this does not appear to be a commonly reported side-effect. See the "Cautions and Concerns" section of the Red Yeast Rice Supplements Review for more information >>
Be aware that if you also take CoQ10 (levels of which may be reduced in people taking red yeast rice or a prescription statin medication), this may also cause insomnia in some people.
