Insomnia?

I was just wondering if anyone else who is on medication for seizures also suffers from insomnia. I've always had a difficult time sleeping, but since I've been on medication, it has gotten much worse. For example, I go to bed at around midnight, but cannot fall asleep until two. When I do fall asleep, I wake up an hour later, take another half hour to fall back asleep, sleep for an hour and the cycle repeats itself until I wake up at around 6:30 AM the next morning.

I was under the impression that seizure medication was supposed to cause drowsiness, not insomnia.

Does anyone else suffer from insomnia also? If so, what do you do for it? Any help or insight would be appreciated.

Thanks!
