      No, I'm no expert! Just opinionated, lol! I don't think the Valerian
      is bad in small amounts either, but there is just a tendency to think
      if a little is ok a lot is better. As for the port, and wine - my
      doctor had told me an occasional glass of wine was ok too, and all my
      docs say it's ok for me to have an occasional glass of wine right
      now, as long as that is all it is. I have no liver damage, and I'm
      not on treatment. But there is some evidence in studies that alcohol
      while on treatment can reduce your chance of a response. Nothing
      proved, but who knows? Actually, while alcohol can make you feel
      drowsy and fall asleep it can interfere with the deep restful sleep
      which you need to feel rested.
