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

During the 1986–1987 school year, the Wideye potion was covered in third year Potions classes at Hogwarts.[2]
