one simple way is to sleep at later and later times at night and wake up later also till you get your comfortable sleeping zone
you should keep a bright light on in the room till you are ready to sleep
medicines to discuss with your doctor are:
Sleep aids like clonazepam and eszopiclone
discuss all this with your doctor
try out also to adjust your sleeping time
this should help
