Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :  
How can I help you?
User :   Hello,
My question has to do with getting drowsy when driving home after work. Some days I get really sleepy / drowsy to the point that I nod off for a split second. Other days Iâ??m fine. I have pulled off the beltway (when Iâ??m drowsy) and done something like go to a mall or a food store to look around and Iâ??m just fine! It seems like itâ??s only when I drive. I get an average of 6-7 hours of sleep a night. My job is not at all what Iâ??d call stressful. My bp is normal, I have had various testâ??s checking blood flow and so on, all is good.

What is your take on this?
