    Sleepy Nonsmoker
    suzycreamcheese77 posted:
    I quit smoking 2.5 weeks ago after being a smoker for 16 years. I feel great and it is going fairly well, but I've noticed sever changes in my sleep patterns. I was expecting to have trouble sleeping due to withdrawal, but instead I haven't been able to get enough sleep! Several days I have slept 10 to 12 hours at once. I don't necessary feel depressed, just sleepy! Is this normal?

    Hi Suzy,
    I attempted to reply prior to this but the website was not functioning properly.
    Over sleeping can be a symptom of depression and depression is the number one withdrawal symptom of stopping smoking. I would suggest a visit with a doctor that is familiar with tobacco issues and I would also consider Buproprion to help you deal with your issue. Please remember I'm doing this with very little information about you, OK?
