They actually make an anti sleep device which you hang on your ear (like a hearing aid) and it wakes you when you start to fall asleep. I would recommend one that has adjustable volume control. I don't know if this one has volume control, but check it out here: http://stayawakedevice.com/shop/stay-awake-device/

Taking pills is only making the trouble worse, she would be driving asleep with her eyes open! She should take a 20 minute break every two hours minimum on a long journey, but if she starts falling asleep after only 1/2 an hour regularly, then she definitely should not be driving!

it is stupid thing to fight sleep on daily bases . I drove 2000 km from Sarajevo to Paris in 24 hours ... and as proud I am of myself for doing it ,I have to say it was one of most stupid things I have done in my life . I was lucky that time but would not do it again. It is dangerous game.

She should try to get at least 8 hours of sleep per night. If she cannot get enough sleep and needs to drive somewhere then she should drink energy drinks or some kind of caffeinated beverage to stay awake. I've heard that listening to the radio helps and that if you're really tired, pulling over and walking around outside for a minute can also get your blood flowing and wake you up. However, if she is really tired to the point where she is falling asleep while driving the best thing would be to not drive at all until she feels that she can drive safely, or to have someone else who isn't as tired drive her. Driving while extremely tired can be fatal to her and others on or around the road. It's by far better to be safe than sorry. Best of luck to you and your mother!
