    Anyone have any advice for what to do when you are at work and feel so sleepy that you could close your eyes and go right out?

    I am battling it today..

    That feeling comes right out of the blue doesn't it, one minute awake, next minute feel so drugged.

    I have no advice as I work from home when I am able to, so just lie down.

    Hope you get some replies that help.

    I take 50 mg. of it everyday and it has helped me. For now, I have heard that peppermint and cinnamon is good to use to keep one awake when they are driving on a long trip.

    You may want to try some of that. I don't know what form to take of it, mints or what. I would think mints.

    The next time this happens try noticing your breathing. I do this a lot at work, and there is nothing worse than knowing you can fall off your chair sound asleep:)

    Usually it's partly because I'm too tired and in too much pain to breathe deeply. I find I've been taking tiny, little shallow breaths and just not getting enough oxygen. Strange as it may seem, some days it is just too darn hard to even breathe right, right??

    Hope things improve for you.
