I have to drive a lot for work. Is there anything I can do to stay awake while driving?

In brief: Yes

Get plenty of rest the night before.
Avoid driving if too sleepy; its not worth dying over. If you are sleeping and still tired the next morning get checked for sleep apnea--this would need treatment. There are medications to overcome narcolepsy if you have it and they would be essential. Breathing oils of peppermint and citrus will help but not overcome sleep apnea; see www.Medac4u.Com.
