A 48-year-old woman presented to the respiratory sleep clinic with a complaint of general non-specific tiredness, excessive sleepiness, and snoring. Her Epworth sleepiness score (ESS) was 17/24 (upper limit of normal = 9). A routine sleep history revealed no obvious cause for the sleepiness, although she was currently seeing a counsellor for depression. Sleep study was normal, apart from approximately 30 minutes of snoring. A diagnosis of depression-induced sleepiness and tiredness was made.
