I've had maybe 10 hours proper sleep in the last week. As a result, my Doctor has prescribed me some sleeping pills, Promethazine Hydrochloride.

I collected them from the chemists on the way home from work and have just opened the packaging. Instructions are:
Take ONE at night

WARNING. THIS MEDICINE MAY MAKE YOU FEEL SLEEPY...
Really? Pills I'm supposed to take at night to make me go to sleep may make me feel sleepy and I need to be warned?

Thanks, wouldn't have figured out that sleeping pills might make me sleepy...

(Ok, the rest of it is the standard don't drive or do silly things after taking it, but, really, they actually need to warn people this?)

There's always those few stupid people that take drugs like that, drive and get in wrecks and then try to sue the drug company.

Drugs are funny, though - I was once prescribed an anti-nausea medicine that had the possible side effect of nausea (and yep, me being the queen of side effects, that was what happened. Guess my body wanted the "oh just barf and get it over with" effect instead)
