A member asked:

My normal sleep hour were 8, now needing at least 10 hrs to function, is this hypersomnia, or has my body changed wid age or is need for 10 hrs normal ?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Hypersomnia: This change makes me wonder about the possibility that you might be either taking a medication that is causing you to sleep more, or that you have a sleep disorder that is interrupting your sleep, or that you have a mild form of depression, or possibly some other medical condition. You should see your doctor for an evaluation.
