Hello Hlengiwe.
I'm wondering why your doctor prescribed these tablets. Nyxe is the peculiar trade name for a generic form of the drug Zolpidem, which is supposed to make you drowsy as it is properly used only as a sleeping pill. Maybe he didn't explain properly what it does and how to use it.  It is supposed to be taken only at night when you are preparing to how to bed, when the drowsiness would be just what you want. And unlike older types of sleeping meds, which often still left you annoyingly drowsy the next morning, Zolpidem was designed to get you to sleep, and then to wear off before morning.  One wouldn't want too high a dose or to take it too late in the night, and should be careful if it is somehow leaving you extra drowsy in the morning, because this can reduce your ability to cconcenrate or to drive safely.
