To much sleep

My husband sleep about 20 hours per day. He has been to a doctor was diagnosed with slight depression and was put on venlor 150mg and Azor. He allso have very high blood pressure which he is taking medication for, but I think the fact that he is sleeping so much is becoming a problem now, What should he do and could you perhaps suggest a docter he can go and consult who will be able to assist him to have a normal life again. He allso stopped working in Feb this year and since then does not show any interest in any daily activities, though I have tried several things to get him interested in, but all he wants to do is sleep.
