    Drowsiness?

    My doc prescribed me Zantac for gastritis. I took one dose yesterday evening and one this morning. When I took one yesterday I didn't feel any side effects but this morning I definitely feel a little drowsiness. I haven't ate anything since taking it though. Anyone else experience this?
