Sleepy mornings: Are you getting enough sleep? For your age you should be getting at least 8 hours each night. You said you got the pills but are you taking the supplement as directed. That is important. Also, if you have entered deep rem type sleep during the evening you should be "tired" or "sleepy" when you wake in the morning. Do you eventually get going?
