View Full Version : Caffeine gives me a better nights sleep?

10-16-12, 05:07 AM
I sleep pretty well, but I dream all night and quite frequently wake up in the night. I noticed that if I had a cup of chai tea before bed I would sleep a lot better. I thought it was caffeine free and it was the warm drink that helped. I realised the other day that chai has a small amount (40mg) of slow release caffeine. When I drink it right before bed I sleep through and have no dreams.

Am I imagining this or could it be the caffeine?

Alot of people with adhd report an opposite effect with caffeine or stimulants. I can handle a fair amount of coffee in the evenings and do ok.

Coffee amps me up, but ADHD meds (especially ritalin) can put me to sleep.
