Poll : Do you nap throughout the day?

It’s only 3:30pm and I am getting seriously tired. Probably take a nap soon. I do this most days of the week lately. Probably a combination of having a slow metabolism due to lack of exercise, diabetes and meds in my case. How about you?

  • Yes, I usually take a nap during the day
  • No, I stay up until it’s bedtime.

Depends what you mean hahah I sleep when I get the chance. Most times I can’t but when I can I take advantage of it. It’s like stay up for 3 nights then sleep for 12 hrs lol

I never napped while on 3 and 4mg risperdal but started napping after 3pm sometimes since I increased my dose to 6mg. I asked my psychiatrist if increasing the dosage will make me sleepy and he said probably it will.

Napping messes with my sleep cycle too much and leads to trouble. I avoid it as much as possible.

You’re right it does. I think I’ll try to stay up and sleep a normal schedule for once.

I used to nap a lot in day. I found it messed with sleep cycle. In bed all day up all night. Somehow I’ve managed to turn it around and sleep in night now.

Last night I slept 5 hours got up to take pain meds for my headache was up just long enough for the meds to start working and went back to sleep for 2 more hours. That’s the longest I’ve slept in a really long time. So no nap needed today. But usually I sleep 4 hours at night and just have a couple hour naps.
I think that’s might change now with the new bed.

I usually crash for an hour after dinner time. It’s not so much a choice. I’m just going down, whether I like it or not

Doctors orders, literally.

I told him my sleep and Med schedule, he told me to nap if it doesn’t interfere with my duties. He’s a huge proponent of sleep for those like us.

It’s funny, he never works before noon, he “has to sleep in and have my coffee before I can get going”, lol

I nap. Most of the time I don’t fall asleep. Just right after taking meds in the morning I can sleep a while.

I don’t really nap, but I do sometimes rest for a bit.
Just shut off all the lights, kill everything that makes sounds, take off all my clothes, and lie still for an hour
