Benzodiazepine eyes are tired?

I rarely take benzodiazepines but even if I take the smallest amount, for example, .5 mg of diazepam I feel fine. However, after it wears off my eyes get tired and I can't keep them open without effort. If I take another .5mg then they wake up. Why is that?

It sounds like some type of paradoxical reaction, nonetheless it does not sound like the benzodiazepine for you
