A:   Thank you for writing to us.

What you have described is known as vasovagal syndrome or disorder. This happens when you have increased blood supply to the stomach after eating and this reduces the blood supply to the brain. This causes the drowsiness. Eat small quantities of food to avoid this.

Hope it helps you. All the best.
