Michael Roizen, MD, Internal Medicine, answeredWhen you're looking for ways to get to sleep, a little wine before bed sounds like a great idea, but for most of us, it backfires. While alcohol is sedating at first, which helps with falling asleep, later in the night it tends to do a 180 and wake you up; in extreme cases, 20 times! Instead of feeling energized and refreshed the next morning, you're bleary-eyed and tired. Alcohol also seems to mess up your most restorative sleep.
Timing counts. For most people, allowing an hour or two between a drink and bedtime avoids problems. Unlucky ones need a six-hour gap.
