This is Dr. David

sleep is a very complex issue

many issues can affect sleep, medications, psychological issues, sleep hygeine, being overweight can cause sleep apnea.

your diet and exercise regimen, caffeine use can all affect sleep

it sounds like your doctors are treating you with Belsomra.

I would expect you have had a full sleep evaluation from a sleep specialist doctor and had a sleep study already?
