What can cause excessive daytime sleepiness?

Many things: Some conditions like sleep apnea and restless legs syndrome interfere with sleep at night, resulting in tiredness/sleepiness in the day. Others are sleep disorders that themselves produce sleepiness, like narcolepsy. Still others are effects of medications or drugs; some mental illnesses like depression too. See your doctor for an evaluation. Can also see a sleep medicine doctor.
