Try doing this.   Go to bed and awaken the same time every day regardless of how much or little sleep you got the night before. This will reset your sleep clock. 3 hours before sleep stay away from caramel colored soda like coke and pepsi, chocolate, and exercise, tea, coffee and caffeine, this upsets sleep clock.   When you start to twist and turn do it for only 20 minutes then go into another room and read something, no computer.When you start to doze immediately go back into the bedroom this retrains the brain into thinking that thebedroom is for good sleep only. Do this as many times as you awaken each night, it will lesson. 30 minutes before sleep take a hot bath this lowers the body temp for a good nights sleep. l5 minutes before bedtime take a glass of warm milk. Milk when heated contains tryptophan a natural amino acid sleep inducer. Do this for at least 6-8 weeks for results though many have seen results in as little as 2 weeks.

Make sure to alert your md that you are lowering the dosage.
