Many people who have a work schedule like yours, have a disorder like this.
Some use blinders on their eyes if trying to sleep during the day. Also ear plugs are necessary.
Others use foil on the windows along with ear plugs.
Chamomile Tea or a Sleepytime Tea is another suggestion.
Try dropping the medications and try the more natural ways. Because like you have found out they finally quit working.
Wishing you some good sleep
