comment Why do some medicines induce sleep?
Hi - I agree with some previous comments that this is too broad because (and this is an assumption) the mechanisms will probably differ between medicines - if you have a few in mind then list them in the question and this will hopefully be answered (I am very interested to see an answer - particularly for antihistimines I take around this time of year... makes me very groggy some days)

comment Do I still have a chance of growing taller?
Tall parents do not necessarily give tall children. Height is an incredibly complex trait, affected by genetics and other things (e.g. diet). Because so many genetic sites affect height, your parents may not have the same "taller" alleles, and you may not have inherited any of them! Sorry, I realise this has been closed, but thought I would add this info just to add that lots of things affect height, and even if we're just talking genetics two tall parents do not always give tall offspring. P.S. this may be re-opened if you edit it to make it a "general" question not specific to you.

comment Can you recharge without sleeping?
Ok. Didn't realise that reference was for all the points due to the vague wording - my apologies, it is an interesting answer.

comment Can you recharge without sleeping?
Hi, this is a well-written answer, but can you include a few references (e.g. that lack of sleeps would kill you sooner than lack of food). Thanks!

comment Can you recharge without sleeping?
Hi Marc - this has received a number of close votes because personal medical questions, or questions relating to your own personal health, are considered off topic. To make this "on topic" just remove the references to your own situation, therefore any answers/recommendations cannot be misconstrued as personal medical advice (which the vast majority of people here are not qualified to give). Thanks!

Thanks! At what is now the University of Exeter Medical School - what was the Peninsula Medical School. "Genomic epidemiology" with Prof David Melzer & Prof Lorna Harries. I have been here since 2006 (for my undergraduate degree) - and you?

I will try not to let the fact you went to Exeter (where I have just got my PhD) bias my voting!
