Welcome to Health Care Magic

From your history it appears that you have either some sleep dysfunction mainly Hypersomnia or some depressive disorder. You are also having tiredness, this is because of depressive symptoms along with hypersomnia. I would advise you to not to take caffeine tablets by yourself. Consult a good Psychiatrist and get your polysomnography done to rule out any serious sleep disorder as if the problem would continue for long time you may suffer from metabolic disorders like Obesity, Diabetes mellitus etc.
