Oppressive drowsiness or inclination to sleep.
Somnolence (or "drowsiness") is a state of near-sleep, a strong desire for sleep, or sleeping unusually long periods. It has two distinct meanings, referring both to the usual state preceding falling asleep, and the chronic condition referring to being in that state independent of a circadian rhythm. The disorder characterized by the latter condition is most commonly associated with users of prescription hypnotics, such as Mirtazapine or Zolpidem.
