Red wine: Too much of a good thing is no good for you. That said, drink a glass of red wine but do it slowly and don't get a refill.

I have to disagree with my colleague. While Restavit only contains the antihistamine doxylamine, MANY people have idiosyncratic or synergistic reactions to combinations of alcohol with sedating drugs (where 1+1=5), and I do NOT recommend drinking ANY alcohol on top of ANY sedating drug. Talk to your health professional about your sleep problems and alcohol use.
