    I took one Aleve this morning for a headache and now I'm feeling sooooo sleepy! Could the Aleve make me feel drowsy?

    I've taken Aleve many times and never felt sleepy, however, I'm a firm believer in medicine reacting differently in different people.

    I tend to have the opposite reaction from many medicine. Bonine, for motion sickness, makes me VERY sleepy (like totally out of it for 24 hours--strange!), but it's supposed to be non-drowsy and most people take it without problems. I also tend to be very sensitive to medicine and tend to half dose things like cold medicine.

    I'm also very sensitive to meds that make people sleepy. I also take only half doses of cold meds. One day, while on a full dose of cold medicine, I fell asleep in front of the ATM waiting for my money! :rolleyes: :p

    OMG, that is awful falling asleep while waiting for $! :eek: I'm trying to think of something really witty to say, but I clearly need to drink my cup of coffee first. :tongue:
