Sleep®

Ok, as far as we know, the only real cure for tiredness, an affliction that affects all of mankind, is Sleep® but I think people these days have completly overlooked the side effects of this "wondercure".
Most people blindly accept these side effects as "normal" while others don't even see them as side effects at all!!
If the side effects of Sleep® were associated with any other cure they would be classed as severe but not for sleep.
For those of you who have completly overlooked the side effects then here they are.

1. Blackouts, people loose literally hours while under the influence of Sleep® and don't seem to mind, imaging if Aspirin did this.. this is an extremely severe side effect.

2. Hallucinations, people often describe vivid hallucinations while under the influence of Sleep®.

There are also a number of minor side effects such as a crust building up at the corners of the eyes and sometimes at the corner of the mouth, there is temporary scarring more commonly known as "pillow face" and probably most frightening of all the dreadad "bed hair" which is a clear indication that a person has recently "used" Sleep®.

These side effects Must be investigated, the makers of Sleep® should be brought to account on them and alternative cures for tiredness should be found.
The makers of Sleep® should also be investigated for monopolies trading.

True, but that costs a lot. My cure comes from this small company called Starbucks....

I'm moving to a different Sleep® provider

And don't forget the other undesired effects of Sleep® which would be, the lack of saliva inducing thus giving your mouth a foul odor and the drooling effect....

hm.. Nice thread Feroluce

Feroluce - Another common side effect you forgot to mention is a bad taste in your mouth and the phenomenon commonly called "Morning Breath" - That one is even worse that Bed Hair.

What would one do if they were addicted to Sleep®? Are there rehab clinics for those addicted to Sleep®? I want to know what the Sleep® 12 step program would be like......
always,

Governments are still refusing to recognise the dangers of Sleep® and therefore do not see fit to treat addicts..

We must bring this terrible affliction to the notice of a much larger audience.

We will have to organise a series of similtaneous concerts all around the world and call it "SlumberAid"...

I've also found that mixing this drug with certain other drugs, such as alcohol, noticeably increases the side effects...

If the side effects are being grumpy and feeling sick when you wake up then I agree on that.

Actually, those're side effects of the alcohol. I've noticed, however that alcohol also increases the side effects of the Sleep - you know, the blackouts, the hallucinations, and especially the "Pillow face" the "Bed Hair" and the "Morning Breath"
