911DOC :

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer,

911DOC :

i assume you were given this for sleep...

911DOC :

if so, you might have been surprised that when you slept 8 or 9 hours you woke up tired....

911DOC :

the drug has a half life between 15 and 30 hours therefore it can take many days to get 'out of your system'...

911DOC :

please let me know if you have further qeustions....

911DOC :

best...

911DOC :

obtw, it is a very safe drug... but the somnolence and 'foggy-headedness' can last days.
