Are there any over-the-counter medications that can help with excessive daytime sleepiness?

In brief: Not really

The only stimulant medicines you'll find over the counter are caffeine containing.
There are some herbal supplements that also employ certain herbal remedies, but often also have a lot of sugar in them. There are a lot of important (and reversible) reasons for your symptoms that a doctor in their clinic can figure out for you.
