Yes, this happened to me at the beginning of my symptomts. I don't remember that i recognized any way that can help but improvement as time passes. May be if you stick to a specific bed time, i guess this may help too.

i wasn't on a certain drug all the period. i took many drugs many times and for no very long period but to simplify.

--fluvoxamine maleate100 mg + amisulpride 200mg------started july 2012 and total taper in february 2015 ( 9 months without drugs then)

--sertraline 100mg -------started november 2015 and total taper (withoud reduction slowly) in november 2016( 4 months withoud drugs then).

--sertraline 100mg + quetiabine 25mg ( started in mars 2016 and for 7 months) then fluvoxamine maleate 100mg again for another 7months and after that a something like to use every drug for 14 days and for about 1.5 years.

--my last drug was trintellix 10 mg ( used it in 12/2018and total taper in 4/2019).

symptomts i have now ( bad concentration and problems in short and long memory+ bad depersonalization).

Thanks for chiming in, Mustafa.  Last night I actually had trouble falling asleep and once I did I woke up 2-3 times.  Fortunately, I am retired so I was able to get a little more sleep late this morning.  
 

I did just hang blackout curtains and it does help to keep the bright morning light out.  If anyone else has any other ideas please let me know.
