I guess I would suggest perhaps substituting some of the nights of the week a benzo-type sleep aid with a shorter half life so that you don't oversleep, such as Sonata, Ambien, or Halcion--or perhaps Restoril if you wake up too soon on one of these. You might also try a lower dosage of the sedating med (I assume you are using something like trazodone or Remeron), or perhaps look at an antihistamine with a shorter half life, such as diphenhydramine (Benadryl), doxylamine (Unisom tablets), or hydroxyzine, which is a prescription antihistamine.
