Problems sleeping after drinking
Why is it that if I go out and have a big night on Saturday i.e. get very drunk, do I have some serious issues sleeping on Sunday night. I have anxious dreams and I sweat quite a bit. A number of my friends have the same problem (not all). Is there something I can do. I've tried everything running gym you name it !!!! Am I destined to be comotose on Monday mornings .
Awake, I know it sounds radical, but have you ever considered not drinking so much? :-) Have you tried taking something like Legalon® the day before the party? It should give your liver that extra bit to handle the assault you direct at it every weekend. As soon as the liver can't keep up with breaking down the alcohol, more and more toxins heap up in the body and this might affect your sleep the next day. You might also be withdrawing from the alcohol the next evening and this may also affect your sleep. Good luck.
