Petachaie rash on upper arm. May have bumped into something while taking Alka Seltzer Plus Night Cold medicine with aspirin
From this study (1 month ago):
Doxylamine succinate makes me very lethargic the next day. It makes it even harder to get out of bed in the morning than when I slept poorly, even if i got sufficient sleep. If I take 2 (which is a higher but still safe dose for the tablets I use) it takes a lot to even get up off the couch. It makes me very lazy, but it does seem to work.
I only ever use this as my very very last resort.
