Do you take your lantus at night? If so, talk to your endo about switching to morning. I never used to fall asleep before 4am, then my lantus was switched to morning(because of nightime lows) and I have a normal sleep schedule now. Not sure if the insulin was keeping me up, or the nervousness of nighttime lows.

Try Melatonin, you can get it in different dosages, I only need 5 mg. it's a natural chemical in your brain anyway, no side effects.
