Doctor's Ayurvedic Advice:-

The tiredness is commonly seen in obstructive sleep apnoea after sleeping in the night. Day time sleepiness will also be there. It happens due to the obstruction in the nasal passages as they narrow while sleeping. Obese persons commonly experience it with snoring. Please let me know about your weight to guide you further.

The medicines which you are taking are to improve the sleep and to regulate the sleep cycle. Please continue the medications along with the Ayurvedic medicines. Ayurvedic medicines like Dasamoola aristam - 25ml after food thrice daily and Aswagandha churnam can be taken for a month and reviewed. Nasyam can be done with Anu thailam. Brahmi tailam can be used as a hair oil and to massage the head. Continue with pranayamam which is beneficial. Try to avoid to sleep in the day as it will affect the sleep during night.

Include milk, cinnamon, basil, orange, pomegranate, olive oil, avocados, spinach, green tea, garlic and carrot juice. Reduce excess coffee, carbonated beverages, tea, sugar, alcohol and fried foods. Yogasanas like supported sarvangasana, sirsasana, padmasana, halasana and savasana are beneficial.

Hello Doctor, I am 35 years old male and I have disturbed sleep for the last 18 years. Even when I get 8 hours of sleep at night I don't feel rested in the morning. I feel sleepy all day but if I try to nap in the afternoon I choke within a minute of falling asleep and wake up gasping for breath and palpitation. This is generally a frightening event and it keeps me from attempting to nap during the day.

I have been prescribed ezopiclone 2mg, melotonin 7.5 mg and zolpidiem 5mg for 4 years. I take medication at night around 10:30 PM before going to bed and fall asleep generally by 11:00 pm. Except one trip to the bathroom, my nights are generally eventless. I get 7-8 hours of sleep at night. In the morning i wake up feeling tired. It feels as If i haven't slept at all. Then spend my whole day feeling tired and wanting to sleep.

Pls advice. I am doing Kapalbhati (100 5 sets of 100 each) Anoolom Vilom 5 Sets of 25 each) for the last 5 Days.
