3 doctors weighed in:

I drink one or two litres of water an hour before sleep. Will this give me water intoxication, killing me in my sleep?

2 doctors agree

In brief: No

However, most doctors would recommend drinking less water closer to bedtime for a variety of reasons.
I would change the interval to 2 hours before bedtime and make sure to go (void) before going to sleep.
