In brief: I don't like them!

I don't like your colleagues! my mother always says: "ya gotta look out for number one".
Is it worth helping everyone else if you'e going to pay for it by being exhausted the entire weekend? It's your choice. Do what you have to do to do an excellent job, but take care of yourself, as it obviously affects your physical and mental health, but remember what mom says: ya gotta look out for #1.

In brief: Push back

Disruptive work hours and altered sleep are a killer for people dealing with dysautonomia.
Don't give in, politely of course.

In brief: Discuss with your HR

You only have to work hours contracted, no matter what co-workers say.
More importantly, you are responsible for your own health. Co-workers can contract their own hours. Remain diplomatic & keep firm. Good luck.
