Is it actually bad for your body temp to drop?

I know that some animals, such as mice, can have their body temperatures drop down to half of their waking temps, and their heart rates drop below 10 bpm when they are hibernating. Bats are another example of this.

Thats interesting though. Ive been having a lot of trouble getting to bed all my life, but have refused taking meds because of the dependency created. Though, there are newer drugs where this is not the case, id rather go with something less powerful. Was thinking of taking melatonin, or tryptophan, but havent gotten around to getting either.

And just curious, why do you check your body temp before/after you go to bed?
