What do you call a phobia to sedatives and drugs that induce sleep?

Posted by ShoatM

I have recently come out of a 5 week coma, and ever since then, I seem to have developed a fear of anything that may put me to sleep, make me drowsy, or alter my perception in any way. 

I wanted to know if this is all in my head and something that will go away, or if there is an actual name for it.

This seems to be a logical response to your recent experience. Since you clearly recognize the fear, it will likely subside. Talk to your physician about it and follow recommendations by your treatment team.
