Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
This is because prolong awakening leads to over stimulation of reticular activation centre of brain.
You would need lorazepam or mirtazapine for one week to settle the issue.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
