What should worry you

it only says it "may" make you drowsy.

Actually the way they list adverse side affects for drugs is quite interesting. Basically anything that a guinea pig feels during the trial is reported whether it is causally linked to the drug or not. The tester has a headache in the morning, it may have been the red wine last night or the workers with the jackhammer outside, doesn't matter it's added to the list.

This is also why drug companies stay fairly well away from twitter and other social media. If they read a tweet where someone says "oh my god I took Promethazine Hydrochloride last night and woke up this morning with the measles" they have to investigate it, write reports blah blah blah... So they they'd rather not know it exists.
