    Better sleep schedules, better diet and possibly exercise.

    Unless there is an underlying cause (I know anemia is quite bad for tiredness), then you will get drugs to treat that condition.

    I'm assuming you have difficulty with sleeping. Sometimes doctors can prescribe sleeping pills such as zopiclone or zolpidem which are only for short-term use. I really wouldn't recommend this as it made it harder for me to get off to sleep without the pills and they can be very addictive as they have a sedative effect.

    edit - don't listen to a word I just said considering you said you get good sleep

    If you have a hormone deficiency they might give you Melatonin supplements however there are plenty of causes of fatigue so the treatment varies massively.

    hi my sleep is quite good i get about 8 to 9 hours on average and i wake up feeling really tired with brain fog also through out the day i have an unfathomable urge to sleep and unless i get up and work around i will fall asleep i have tried every thing under the sun exercise like running and swimming and a healthy diet nothing is working and now even on the rare occasion that I'm not tired i have brain fog which makes me feel like I'm drunk when I'm not.

    I'm really not too sure sorry :/ you'll have to go to the doctors and just see what they can give you.
    Hope you can solve your issue soon!
