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

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?)

Most sleeping pills are on the list of "drugs that are more likely to produce paradoxical reactions" for me. So, the two times I've taken Ambien (had to make sure the first time wasn't a fluke), I was awake and wired for about 60 hours, then dropped and slept for like 36.

If sleeping pills are all in fact antihistamines as an above commnenter said then maybe I can see why, since personally, all antihistamines except Benadryl, which makes me really sleepy, wire me up something bad.
