Just as an afterthought (if I may), could improving the sleep

This answer was rated:

Just as an afterthought (if I may), could improving the sleep with additional drugs be an alternative? Because occasionally I do get a nights sleep where I sleep really well where I don't get up at all.

This is Dr. David

thank you for your prior positive feedback and bonus.

you have to be careful with sleep medications.

some sleep mediations like Ambien or Lunesta can cause you to get up in the middle of the night and cause you to eat and do things you don't remember.

so you have had these problems already

mild sleep aids might be safe like benadryl (diphenhydramine) or tyelnol pm (with diphenhydramine) or 1-3 mg of melantonin.

you should talk to your doctor about these options first.
