Like "What is a sleep mask? I take Amyril 1 mg OD at breakfast for controlling BS. As far as sleep is concerned, if I take 2 or 3 drinks at night, then I can sleep well. The night I dont take a drink, I need to take a very small dose of pill, 1/4 th of valium or diazepam helps. Drinks, like beer or scotch, also brings sugar level down. I read some where, 'Beer a day keep diabetes away'. What is the affect of alcohal if one is taking medication for diabetes? Any comment? "
