    whenever i drink milk i get so tired. it doesn't matter if its cold milk or warm milk. i cant have milk and cereal in the morning or ill be out like a light. so i usually have cereal as a bed time snack. or if i cant sleep i drink milk and in about 10 minutes im ready to hit the bed. i was wondering if milk had this effect to anyone else.

    I don't think so. I eat cereal in the morning but sometimes at night as snack. Warm milk, yes.

    Did you research or ask your doctor about this?

    Hmmm I haven't noticed that I get sleepy after drinking some milk so I guess it doesn't.

    If I drink milk at night, it soothe my stomach, making it easier to go to sleep. Same as cheese or peanut butter. But if I drink it in the morning or afternoon, it doesn't make me sleepy.

    I drink milk, but it doesn't make me fall asleep. Maybe warm milk will do but I haven't noticed that.

    I used to when I was pregnant, but milk makes my stomach upset, so I don't drink milk anymore and I don't eat cereal anymore either.....

    Milk does a body good!

    I like milk once in a while when I eat spicy food sometimes.

    Hmm... I've never had this problem. I drink strawberry milk, chocolate milk, vanilla milk, and regular milk at bedtime... nothing.

    well, yes sir, it may make me sleepy when my room gets too warm. then yeah, it did made me so sleepy but at the most of times, it never occured me being sleepy as I do eat cereals with milk, only 2% milk... well, sometimes with Vi-D.

    AJ,
    The reason you're so sleepy after drinking milk is you might have dairy intolerance. My sister gets sleepy just like you.
