You. You may have already tried not drinking caffeine after noon, not exercising too close to bedtime, and not using your computer or tv within an hour of bedtime. Consider adding "white noise" such as a fan. Be sure that your room is cool and not overly warm. Eating light during the day, then having a larger meal at around 7 pm or so can be helpful. Some conditions such as depression can cause early morning awakening, so if you have any symptoms of depression please tell your doctor. If your sleep problems are ongoing, you may need a different type of sleep medication at your doctor's recommendation.

Too many drugs here. The combination of all this medication is not a good option in my opinion and I don't believe increasing doses of any individual one of these will help you sleep any better.

Again, speaking to your doctor before changing would be best but ultimately, I think for you, LESS is MORE.

Insomnia. A vicious cycle. Might start by tracking sleep hygiene - Keep diary for 1-2 weeks that includes monitoring sleep hygiene behaviors and daily onset/awakening.

If that doesn't work, contact me for an inbox consult and we can brainstorm.
