In brief: Daytime sleepiness

A potential problem for overweight patients who experience daytime sleepiness is obstructive sleep apnea.
Patients with this problem experience daytime sleepiness even though the total hours of sleep seems adequate. The problem is that the quality of sleep is affected. Patients who are affected by this disorder often snore at night. They may also experience awakenings at night.

Obstruction of the nasal passages such as a deviated septum or enlarged tonsils (upper airway restrictive disease) can cause sleep disruption too. See a sleep specialist to evaluate the day time sleepiness and exclude sleep apnea.

In brief: Sleep apnea?

First, you need to follow up with a good primary care physician.
Second, your medications listed shouldn't usually cause sleep problems, although people could have individual side effects not usually associated with those medicines. Third, be evaluated for sleep apnea. It can start with simple question/answering by your doctor. You can look online if you want further information (webmd is good).
