Although drinking alcohol before bed can induce drowsiness, it is proven to disrupt the quality of rest and have negative effects on brain function the next day, according to new research.
Scientists say that, although drinking alcohol can act as a sedative, it can increase activity in the frontal section of the brain and hamper the chances of deep restorative sleep.

Woolcock Institute of Medical Research paediatric sleep specialist Dr Chris Seton said melatonin was a better alternative to the antidepressants and blood pressure medication that some parents are using and which caused severe side effects.
Australasian Sleep Association board member Sadasivam Suresh said studies had been conducted into melatonin and none had found it to be unsafe, but more evidence into its long term effects was needed. As a paediatrician, he prescribed it for short-term use.
