Is there an alcoholic beverage or any time of drink that will help me go to sleep and rest well?

i'm not talking about getting drunk and passing out! i mean something other than a glass of wine, which does not work...ANY kind of drink! (or supplement). i don't have a problem falling asleep but i can't stay asleep...part of the problem is i have restless leg syndrone....i need some REM sleep! i wake up a half dozen times a nite.

I have read alcohol can make the symptoms worse for some. Have you had your iron levels tested? An iron deficiency can bring on the symptoms of restless leg syndrome. I have also read magnesium can play a role. However, I wouldn't recommend taking any additional iron unless you have a verified deficiency. Your doctor can have you tested for nutritional deficiencies. You might be a candidate for a sleep study based on the amount of times you wake up each night.

The best drink would be something that contains ingredients that will natrually need a lot of energy to break down by your metabolism. This process would cause you to feel sleepy. Some people drink heavy malt drinks or thick hot chocolate with. People respond to alcohol differently. But alcohol is a stimulant and breaks down a natrual substance in your brain fluid which causes the drunken effect. So taking such drink is not a good idea for sleep as you would be causing yourself damage when using it for this purpose.

If you drink alcohol every day before you go to sleep you are in the danger zone to becoming an alcoholic.

However i use sleeping pills before i go to sleep, and they really work!
