Excessive drowsiness can either be symptom of atypical depression, a variant of depression or obstructive sleep apnea. Do you snore a lot?. If yes, then it's most probably obstructive sleep apnea. If your sleep studies are Normal then this can be manifestation of atypical depression for which antidepressants may be needed.
