My antiparasitic herbs knock me out.

It can be a sign of dieoff. So yes a herx,

Every herb has its own properties. You can look each one up and see what properties are for each. I am unfamiliar with the Cowden protocol but for herb that I know:

Garlic is a hot herb, stimulating in nature. It will not make you sleepy but rather wake you up. Same with ginger

Andrographis is a cold herb and sedating in nature. It will make you sleepy.

Coptis is a cold herb but seems to neither stimulate nor sedate.

All are antiparasitic but each has a different action, a different and unique nature.

Also from that same book, this explains a lot about how herbs work:
