Is it okay that I took sleeping pills at night and had an energy drink the next AM?

I've done this a few times. I have a REALLY hard time falling asleep and I either took benadryl, advil pm, or simply sleep to help fall asleep around 12 or 1am. I had to get up at 6 for work and drink a red bull on the way to work. Is that spaced out enough to where it would be okay? I would never take sleeping pills at the same time as an energy drink.

There's nothing wrong with it, except you need to figure out how to regulate your sleep patterns so that you aren't relying on meds to fall asleep and then caffeine to jolt you awake in the morning. That's not the best way to balance your body rhythems...

Speeling pills are addictive and a really hard habit to break ...my mother was addicted to them many years ago....and taking the energy drink is just as addictive , definatly try to find out why you're having issues with getting to sleep.....if it's pain or stress related try talking to your familey doctor....
