Do any of these Supps interfere with sleep?

For the last few months I have been waking up before 5am and unable to get back back to sleep.  This is not a depressive disorder and is completely physiological in nature.  The supps I am currently taking are:
 
Piracetam
Choline Bitartrate
Inositol
Chromium Piconolate
Alcar
Creatine
Glutamine (mega doses)
Omeprazole
Multivitamin
 
Any advice much appreciated

    Yes, the first three have the potential to effect sleep, although they don't in many people
     
    Are you an ex drinker by the way? Just wondering as a lot of those supps are used by ex drinkers

    Stop taking the supps in bold for a couple of weeks see if that has any effect. Those supps have an effect on brain chemistry and could perhaps be resulting in your feelings of 'wakefulness'.

    Thanks for the replies.  No, not an ex drinker but have an interest in Nootropics and have found that they help me at work which requires high levels of concentration.
    I'll think I will try to cut the ones out you said Osagi and see if this helps.
    I have been reading up on Chromium Piconolate since I posted and it may be causing blood sugar levels to drop whilst asleep provoking an adrenaline / cortisol response making me wake up.  Not sure if there is truth in this or not?

    The ony way your going to know if any of these supps are having an impact on your sleep either by themselves or in combination is to cycle off them for a couple of weeks. I take so many sups myself that when I think I'm not getting on too well with one of them it can be a nightmare working out which one it is lol
