Decreased Alertness Treatment
Drowsiness usually signals the body needs sleep. Drowsiness is a common thing that people experience. However, excessive drowsiness can be such that it affects nearly every aspect of one's life.  Drowsiness can affect attention and concentration.  Drowsiness may impact school or work performance.  Drowsiness can make everything just seem more difficult.

Drowsiness can occur in connection with medical conditions. It can also occur with brain conditions, like after a stroke or a brain injury, or with chronic brain conditions like dementias. Drowsiness can occur with sleep disorders like sleep apnea syndrome or as a result of other conditions that affect sleep.  It may simply be the result of poor sleep hygiene or inadequate sleep.
