If you fall asleep, you can alwasys blame the meds. If you can't sleep, you can do the same. ;\)

I like the "May Cause Drowsiness" warning on sleeping pills. I sure hope so. \:\)

Take care,
Bill

Perhaps these warnings need to be more simple and direct. Instead of "may cause drowsiness," they should read "don't make any f**king plans."

Manoman, what will the medical profession think of next.

Peace and love,

Scot

I am taking medications too. And they help. But you guys are right. In addition to the above I am either going to get constipated or have diarrhea ( boy those are extremes). I can also gain weight or lose weight (how about both at the same time). If symptoms persist or get worth see you doctor. Well in that case I hope it is constipation cause I dont have a porta potty. They all tell me I am gonna sweat and that is actually the truth. The rest! Well!!!

Maybe the two will cancel each other out and you won't be sleepy or be wide awake, you'll just... I don't know... be... I guess. ;\)

It seems like most of mine say 'May cause drowsiness' and 'May cause insomnia'; 'May cause constipation' and 'May cause diarrhea'; 'May cause sedation' and 'May cause agitation'---all on the same medicine!

I get a kick out of the ones that say may cause side effects:
  • Sore throat
  • drowsiness
  • sleeplessness
  • stomach pain
  • diarrhea
  • vomiting

sometimes death.

Oh… that’s not so bad…
