In depressive stages it is common to sleep alot, but if you are only having depressive stages, it might just be depression.

I sleep a lot when I am in depression. Even normally I require at least 8 hours usually 9 hours for a decent night sleep. Any less than that and I notice it.

I sleep 10 hours at night and usually take a 2 hour nap during the day.  Part of it deals with depression and part of it deals with my medication.  There are times that I will wake up at 3am and can't go back to sleep and then I definitely have to take a nap during the day to make it through the day.
