Nasal steroid: You will be better off with a nasal steroid for sinusitis. There are also many antihistamines which do not cause drowsiness but do note that antihistamines do not decongest your nose and thus will not improve sinus drainage without a decongestant.

Sleepiness and meds: Sleepiness is an extremely common side effect of medications. Consistently oversleeping results in a shift of the circadian clock to later hours. This is turn makes it harder to go to sleep in the evening. Reversing this requires consistently getting up and getting light exposure in the morning. In addition, you and your doctor should discuss changing meds, and/or the time at which you take them.

Behavior modifying: One place to start is practicing good sleep hygiene. Keep your sleep pattern consistently structured, avoid napping, use bed only for sleep or intimacy, and avoid lying in bed long periods without sleeping. If falling asleep is troublesome because of trouble turning off your thoughts, relaxation and imagery techniques are often helpful. For more help with these make an appointment with a therapist.

Sleep problems since: Age 4? A medical evaluation is important. Insure that you use excellent sleep hygiene, 1. Keep a regular bedtime & wakening time (to include weekends). Get up the same time each day, regardless of what time you fell asleep. 2. Make a regular, relaxing bedtime routine. Relaxing rituals prior to bedtime may include a warm bath or shower, aromatherapy, reading, or listening to gentle music. 3. Sleep.

My little sister 3 years old, sleeps at 10 wakes up at 9, is this bad? I think she's oversleeping

Not oversleeping: Why does she go to bed SSSOOO LATE? Anyways 12 hours is ok for a 3 year old. For 3 year olds - average daily sleep time is 10 to 13 hours. REF: https://www. Babycenter. Com/0_how-much-sleep-do-preschoolers-and-big-kids-need_64915.bc

What are the hazards of oversleeping?

Worse health: Most people need 7-8 hours of sleep (some need up to 9 and some may get by with 6). Spending more time in bed makes it harder to fall asleep and stay asleep, may make you more tired, and there is evidence that people who spend too much or too little time in bed are less healthy and have higher death rates. There are some disorders (such as idiopathic hypersomnia) that increase need for sleep.
