Lack of sleep can aggravate the withdrawal symptoms quite a bit, I think. I am finding melatonin to be quite a help with getting deeper more refreshing sleep.

I do tend to wake up around 3 AM, but I usually can get back to sleep before long. This is actually a normal sleep pattern. There have been some articles recently about the historical evidence that humans always had a "first sleep" and a "second sleep" with several hours in between, until the invention of electric lighting.

I think people who get stressed out about waking up in the middle of the night, are compounding the problem. It is kind of a pain, but an easy solution might be to go to bed earlier and schedule some "evening" activity for the time between first and second sleep, if you have trouble getting back to sleep right away. That way you could work with this sleep pattern instead of fighting it and ending up with not enough sleep total.
