Un-sleeping... with sleeping pills?
We have always been told there is no recovery from persistent vegetative state - doctors can only make a sufferer's last days as painless as possible. But is that really the truth? Across three continents, severely brain-damaged patients are awake and talking after taking ... a sleeping pill. And no one is more baffled than the GP who made the breakthrough. Steve Boggan witnesses these 'strange and wonderful' rebirths

Maybe they're not sleeping pills, just...state-changing pills. Usually when people take them they're awake, so it makes them sleep, but when people who are asleep takes them it wakes them up...like the gold and green rings in The Magician's Nephew kind of...we thought they did one thing but it turns out they did another. I think I may have to use this in a story...thanks for posting it.
