    Smile Can I take vitamins before bed.

    Hello guys,

    My blood work shows I am chronically Vitamin B12 deficient.

    I have dependance on alcohol. And I must have two drinks of whiskey every night before dinner.

    My understanding is alcohol leeches essential vitamins, and it is most probably caused B12 deficiency.

    I started taking a multivitamin in morning. But I feel its ineffective the next morning. I wake up very lethargic and bad.

    Because alcohol leeches these vitamins every night, so the multivitamin does not work for 24 hours.

    Can I move my multivitamin to night after my last drink? In hopes that it can stay in and work 24 hours?

    Same question for my remaining supplements like T-booster and hair growth supplement.

    Take it whenever you want and then get your blood work redone.

    For your health, have you considered help with your dependency?

    There are niche companies that sell vitamin-infused vodka & beer, in case your body's alcohol dependence isn't solely on whiskey.

    Thanks for answers. My responses in order of questions -

    Ok i'll try them at night.

    I'm not seeking help because I dont quite intend to stop having a drink at night before dinner. It gives me a lot of joy and meaning and I enjoy it like a celebration.
    I also feel one drink of whiskey a night is not too bad. It just has to be balanced with supplements so I am in this quest.

    Yes i only drink whiskey its a matter of taste.

    Thank you.

    Understood. How then do you suggest I solve this problem ?

    All doses of vitamins are supposed to last 24 hours.

    But when i take them in the morning they are worn out by the 10th hour when I drink.

    If i take them at bed time an hour after drinking, absorption at night time is an issue.

    How about i take them in the morning, and then take the same set at night as well.

    Btw, i also see vitamins for alcohol on amazon - they recommend take after drinking before bed.
