Firstly, unless you are malnourished or not having a balanced diet, you probably dont need the supplements. If you are taking them, make sure you take them in the morning - they can keep you awake.

Early morning waking is typical of anxiety or depression - you might need to see someone about that.

If that does not solve the problem, you will probably need to see a sleep doctor.
