Yay! Gundam got his name fixed! I can get away wetting the bed. But the pills make me really sleepy and leathargic throughout the day. And i can't have that with swim team pratice xD!I wwish it would work! i can never wet the bed and I wish I could. it would give me a good reason to tell people so I could wear every night!
Most medicines are like this. "Side-effect" is arbitrary. It just means not the effect you're taking it for.Hey, I have to add though, seriously don't take anything that hasn't been prescribed. And even if it's only store-bought sleeping tablets, if you also take any other meds, check with the pharmacist that it doesn't interact. For example, some sleeping tablets can be dangerous with some antidepressants, even fatal. Nytol for example is basically an antihistamine. Drowsiness is a side effect of antihistamines, so it is essentially a side-effect only medicine! If you already take Piriton or something, this might add up to a higher than safe dose. And alcohol is out if taking sleeping drugs, right? Just a thought. Sorry to be boring.

So, it's not a side-effect that diphenhydramine (benadryl) causes drowsiness when you're taking it as a sleeping pill. It being an anti-histamine is a side-effect.
