Extra sleep at night can cure you of problems with excessive daytime fatigue.

Fact

Both quality and quantity of sleep is important. Some people sleep 8 or 9 hours a night but don't feel well rested when they wake up because the quality of their sleep is poor. A number of sleep disorders and other medical conditions affect the quality of sleep. Sleeping more won't alleviate the daytime sleepiness these disorders or conditions cause. However, many of these disorders or conditions can be treated effectively with changes in behavior or with medical therapies.
