Thank you for your medical query at AskTheDoctor.com
I understand your concern.
You seem to have some insomnia, which could be related to your work or stress levels.
You can try drinking a glass of milk before sleeping which would regularize the sleep pattern.
If it is not relieved, you can consult your physician who can give you Alprazolam at a recommended low dose of 0.5 mg for a week. This will help in making your sleep normal.
Hope this was helpful,
