  • slower and shallower. The more tired your body gets the closer it wants to get to sleep, so it starts to think less, breath less and digest slower. I would start to keep a sleep journal. Keep track of your sleepyness as well as how long you sleep and how you feel and make sure to note when you take your pill. You may notice a pattern. But yes, in general it's normal to breath slower when you are tired - that's why tired people yawn.
