What can cause excessive sleepiness?
Modafinil can help.
Thank you for posting your query.
I am Dr Sudhir Kumar, Neurologist, and I would try my best to help you.
I have noted your clinical details. Generally, more sleep has fewer adverse effects on the body, as compared to lesser sleep. However, excessive sleep is also not desirable. If your a fib medications can not be altered or stopped (which could be a part of the sleep problem), you could try modafinil tablets. Modafinil tablets are effective in causing alertness in people who sleep too much.
I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.
Wishing you good health,
