Trouble Sleeping


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Have trouble sleeping monitor when you are having drinks with caffeine. I recently read that it takes 11 hours to get caffeine out of your system. A big wake up call for me, I generally have trouble sleeping since I work 3rd shift at a hotel. I quit drinking a bottle of Diet Mountain Dew at work because I was always finishing close to quitting time. I now sleep much better because I'm not trying to go to sleep with caffeine still in my system. emoticon

    I didn't realize that it took 11 hours for caffeine to get out of my system. I often drink it a noon lunch, but not at night. Maybe I should stop at breakfast. Thanks for the info.
