Can Cold Medicines Cause Drowsiness And Can Be Used As Sleeping Pills?
Maybe the question is a little weird, but usually a cold medicine makes you sleepy, so can you use it to sleep when you don’t have a cold?
Influenza is a disease caused by a viral infection. Flu is transmitted through respiratory air. Cold medicine consists of various kinds of drugs. What medicine do you mean?
Drugs for flu on the market are quite safe to consume according to the doses listed. Most cold medicines contain antihistamine drugs. Side effects of some antihistamines can cause drowsiness. However these side effects should not be used for sleep purposes. The side effects of sleepiness is not an indication of the use of the drug, so sleepiness does not necessarily occur in everyone who consumes (because only side effects).
In addition to indiscriminate drug consumption can cause liver function, stomach disorders, to drug allergies.
Therefore, if you really have trouble sleeping then it is recommended that you see your doctor directly so that the doctor can examine your condition further.
