Do you have any other symptoms

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for writing to us.
Feeling lethargic during daytime with yawning a lot indicates lack of adequate continuous sleep at night.
Do you snore?
Do you have any other symptoms like headache, sneezing, lack of appetite, etc
Let me know if you have any of these symptoms.
If no.Other symptoms then,
You can multivitamin supplements like zincovit once daily which I usually prescribe in my clinic.
Additionally get basic workup like Complete blood count ( for anemia) and thyroid function tests.
Wishing you good health and speedy recovery.

Brief Answer:
Need more sleep

Detailed Answer:
You need more sleep. Try 6 to 7 hours at a stretch.
Avoid Caffeine containing drinks for at least 2-3 hrs prior to sleep.

If not possible try Powernap in the daytime if you get even half hour to one hour time.

Day time yawning in your case looks more due to inadequate sleeping during night.
