Is it bad if I need a few beers to get to sleep everynight?

Is it bad if I need a few beers to get to sleep everynight?

Yes: Mainly because it will cause you to wake up after the alcohol wears off, and because it will eventually take more than a "few" to put you to sleep. Looking at why you cannot sleep, eliminating caffeine in your diet, reduction of late night activities, regular sleep habits are all much better than using beer as a sleeping pill, or using any kind of sleeping pill. Ur doc/sleep specialist can help. ...Read more

Why is it that i itch so bad that i can't sleep everytime going to bed without beer?

Why is it that i itch so bad that i can't sleep everytime going to bed without beer?

Alcoholic: You may be an alcoholic if you can only sleep comfortably after drinking beer. If you have to have even just one beer every night just to feel "non-itchy" this is a classic sign. It may be your body going through withdrawal and craving the alcohol. Talk to a family member, friend or doctor about your drinking habits. ...Read more

Am sure its later: now. You know, if you really have these kinds of questions, there are pharmacists available at 24 hour pharmacies who can answer your questions in real time. Hydrocodone is a short-acting drug and if you took it at 7 PM it was mainly gone by 10-11 PM. The alcohol would be too. I strongly suggest that next time, you don't drink without thinking. It's a bad combo all around. ...Read more

How dangerous is it to drink a beer or so if I take sleeping pills?

How dangerous is it to drink a beer or so if I take sleeping pills?

Never take together: It's never a good idea to take sleeping pills with alcohol. They both cause sedation and can effect your breathing at night. Alcohol close to bedtime is also discouraged within 5-6 hours of bedtime as it has an adverse effect on your sleep. Proper sleep hygiene can be beneficial to patients with insomnia. Speak to your doctor and see if a referral to a sleep specialist is appropriate. ...Read more
