Can I help myself sleep better?

Quality of sleep counts

Quality of sleep, rather than quantity, partially determines how fatigued you are. Ten hours of non-refreshing sleep, which never reaches the deep level, will leave you as tired, or more tired, when awakening than you were when you went to bed. Developing proper sleep habits – not relying on naps, rising and sleeping on a regular schedule, etc., in conjunction with medication, can help you to achieve more restful sleep. Establish a wind-down routine for bedtime and stick to it.

If exhaustion continues after developing and practicing 'proper sleep habits,' ask your dr for a sleep study. That helps your dr discover why your quality of sleep isn't good. My energy levels massively increased after the dignosis of Obstructive Sleep Apnea and the nightly use of a C-PAP machine.
