Who gave it to you?: "Popping" three pills whose effect you do not know is generally a bad idea. Avandaryl (rosiglitazone and glimepiride) is a medicine for DIABETES. It has nothing to do with sleep. It causes a drop in your blood sugar. If this happens when you are asleep, you could be in real trouble (i.e., permanent brain damage). In this case, what you would get is not sleep, but a coma.
