In cold weather, where death from exposure is a real possibility, using sedatives is a very bad idea.
Freezing to death involves falling asleep and almost feeling warm, prior to this, you do experience cold and shivers.

If you're already out due to drugs, you may not experience the signs that you're in trouble and may simply not wake up.

If your gear forces you to use sedatives, it is the wrong gear.

Your life is worth using proper gear and staying cognizant. With proper gear, you should be able to sleep in sub-zero temperatures.

To any lurkers or new members here, please be aware that free advice you get on the internet is generally worth far less than you pay for it.

Take a minute and ask yourself: If I get this wrong, can I die? If the answer is yes, do a lot of research.

Even in mild or ideal weather, in the post-shtf scenarios always given as a reason for being out there in the first place, using sedatives would still be a horrible idea. Bears, bugs, and thugs would love a non-responsive victim like that.

If you are in a hostile environment post shtf, using sedatives to sleep would be like signing your death warrant. You might get away with it for a while but one way or the other it will catch up with you.
