  • Avoid unnecessary medications that can cause fatigue. Ask your doctor and/or pharmacist to review all the drugs you take, including herbal supplements and over-the-counter drugs, for possible side effects involving sleep and/or fatigue. Explore the possibility of eliminating those drugs and/ or replacing them with other medications that have less effect on sleep or fatigue.
  • Talk to your doctor(s). If fatigue is a big problem for you, let your doctors know about it. Doctors and other health care providers solve problems in different ways, so if one is not able to help you, ask for a referral to someone who can. There may be medications and/or therapies that can ease fatigue and/or sleep problems.
