Hi,

Yes, your concern is right. Codral cold can cause drowsiness in 75% of the patients taking this medicine. You can avoid such side effects by taking the medicine at the night time. If you think its causing unbearable side effects consult your physician to change your medication which does not include chlorpheniramine in its formulation.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
