The Wideye Potion, also known as the Awakening Potion, is a potion which prevents the drinker from falling asleep and can also be used to awaken someone from drugging or concussion.[1] It acts as an antidote for the Draught of Living Death.[3] Its recipe can be found in Magical Drafts and Potions.[1]

History

During the 1986–1987 school year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Professor Severus Snape taught his third-years how to concoct this particular brew in Potions class.[2]

During the 1988–1989 school year, Jacob's sibling, with Penny Haywood looking on, brewed this concoction in the Artefact Room, so as to use it to stay up late cramming some Potions revision as well as to practice brewing this potion for their Ordinary Wizarding Levels that year.[4]
