Extreme Drowsiness

I have been taking Anti-Depressants and Arip since the last 8 months. Have complained to the doctor that at times I feel very drowsy and sleep more than 14 hours a day. Maybe it is due to the intake of these drugs. But the doctor refuses to change the medication saying that my mood is low. What should I do?

Take medications at a fixed time. Prefer to take night medication between 9-10 pm. Preferably shift the dosage to night dose to minimise sedation during daytime. Discuss with Psychiatrist regarding optimization of dosage to avoid medication. Take care. Hope my advise helps you...
