I fall asleep quickly , sleep 4 to 5 hours, and then have difficulty having any more useful sleep.
This may be best served by looking into much of the recent information yielded by sleep studies. Not just eliminating all forms of sugar including artificial, caffeine and being properly hydrated, mid-day exercise, even 30-45 minute walks, changing habits before bed, and more. There are also techniques to help know what to do when you do wake up after a few hours. These differ from person to person, and yes you can try changing the time you take that medication, but much more can be gained nutritionally and with lifestyle change.
I've recently learned of another possibility. There are apps for your android phone, CDs and no doubt many other devices that are guided relaxation/sleep therapy. When you wake after 4-5 hours of sleep, if you put this therapy on, you may fall into the habit of going back to sleep listening to it.
