In brief: Sleepy

Everybody responds a little differently to the narcotic component in the cough syrup.
It is a very low dose that effectively suppresses cough but doesn't make most people tired. I would take it at night to be careful and avoid driving vehicles after taking the medication as that would be dangerous.
