it may be your circadian cycle is disrupted, but that would take around 3-5 weeks of the same sleeping pattern to occur afaik. different drugs like sleeping pills, muscle relaxants and a whole range of pain killers can cause your sleep disruption, you should check if any of the meds clash, if you're on multiple prescriptions :O just some general info really
If you get 6 hours of sleep at night and a two-hour nap during the day, I wouldn't worry that you're sleeping too much. If you're getting 8 hours at night regularly, that's different.
Does the timing of your desire for a nap seem to be connected with a meal time? Like, do you get drowsy just before, or soon after, eating?
I sleep 6 to 8 hrs a night, go to bed bout 10 and I get up usually at 6am, but by noon time I'm ready for a nap, and I finally can't take it anymore and end up asleep by 5pm and up again around 7pm
hmmm.... how long do you fall asleep for? i think a professional is better suited for this, there could be an underlying cause, and it would be wise if such a thing were diagnosed early.....
Assuming your melatonin production is above average, taking it would probably lower it to normal levels. If your levels are normal I don't know of anything that would decrease it
How many hours are you fully asleep on a typical night? Are you on a "normal" daytime schedule, or are you trying to sleep "against" the sun (like if you work nights)?
Naturally? I don't think so, but there are pills of a synthetic version of melatonin that even out melatonin levels, or increase them
do you want to stay awake? or is it something else??? naturally impossible BTW :O
I want to stay awake longer, its like I'm up for 5 or 6 hrs then I need a nap
Thx so much. The only meds I take r estrogen pills. Thx for all ur help
