This is not always true. Some pharmaceuticals are formulated with the intention that they NOT be ingested simultaneously with dairy products...

Some drugs are irritating to the stomach lining or duodenum - and a sufficient amount of liquid ingested with the tablet will "buffer" or slow the absorption of the chemicals.

Depends on the tablets.

And as always don't ever, ever let anonymous strangers guide you about potentially life-and-death matters such as medicine.

Can you take sleeping pills in milk?

Yes, it is possible to take it. There is no ingredient in milk that prevents benzodiazepines (often prescribed sleeping medicines) from being absorbed from the stomach and intestines. As a result, taking sleeping medications with milk is not a problem. In the case of medicine, if it is not permitted to be taken after eating, it is usually because food in the stomach will interfere with drug absorption. As a result, it will be necessary to take the medication before eating or on an empty stomach. Only in that case should the tablet be taken with sips of water ( no milk or any other beverage should be used). That is, no more water, because stomach acidity may be required for digestion and absorption of such tainted foods. you can buy sleep aid tablets from uksleepaid.
