Why am I sleepy during the day?

Feeling sleepy during the day can be due to many causes. Insufficient sleep is a very common cause.

Sleep disorders that contribute to daytime sleepiness include sleep apnea, narcolepsy, and idiopathic hypersomnia.  

Many medical conditions (such as hypothyroidism, certain vitamin deficiencies, depression, and anxiety) can make you feel tired or negatively affect your sleep.

Certain medications (such as some painkillers, antidepressants, antianxiety medications, and medications used to treat colds and allergies) can also cause you to be tired during the day.

Having a variable schedule from rotating shift work or traveling multiple time zones can contribute to sleepiness as well.

Think about what things may play a role in your daytime sleepiness and talk to your healthcare provider.
