Sideways Almost everyday I feel like sleeping nonstop just plain tired, and then about 5pm Im full of some I say some energy. I like dark cloudy days especially winter because it gives you an excuse to lay aroung. Im not lazy I mean I want to have energy. Does anyone else expierience this? I wonder if its the Prozac, but Ive been on it for 5 to 6 yrs.

Have you been more anxious or depressed lately? That was happening to me and it caused me great tiredness. I slept a good sleep, but I'd feel the need for a nap the majority of the day. My Dr. switched my meds and that helped (I was on Zoloft for a year). But it sucks I know. Some days I would drive to work and I'd think that I would have to pull over b/c I thought I'd fall asleep again after an 8hr sleep, but I never did thank god lol.

Hi Dreams

Your symptom is possibly -

1. sleep apnea

2. mono

Both are bad actors.

You should consider getting checked out. Just my opinion.

Hi Raoul,

I can't speak for cindersoot, buy I can definitely say those were neither of my problems. Thanks though.

I feel it too and I think the urge to sleep goes into our serpintine levels of the brain from caveman days, and I think we go into a pseudo-hibernation in the winter. Maybe it used to be useful (before modern heaters and such) to sit around and sleep and eat in order to stay warm and just survive the winter. Also FYI energy comes from sun! Even on the grayest days, there is 10x the amount of spectrum light outside than with a florescent bulb indoors. TRUST ME. I have virtually cured myself of SAD and Depression so this is no joke. Get outside and you'll feel better. Although I recommend snow pants if you are going to stay out for more than 10 min. I discovered the joy of snow pants after having kids. Now I have an excuse to wear them! GO SNOWPANTS!
