While it might seem obvious, among the most effective ways to treat hypersomnia is simply to get more sleep at night. When an individual is suffering from hypersomnia, it will be much easier for them to fall asleep during the day than is normal. While they won't be able to completely eliminate these issues, getting a high amount of sleep each night should help minimize the problems caused by this condition. It's recommended for hypersomnia patients to obtain anywhere from eight to ten hours of sleep each night. If they do so, the drowsiness they experience during the day may be able to reduce enough so only a short nap is needed. Even though it can be difficult for an affected individual to go to bed earlier than they normally do, their body will eventually adjust after a couple of weeks.
