To sleep or not to sleep?

Hello superstars!

I'm happy to say that thanks to the awesome support of this community (not necessarily directed to me, but helping me anyway lol) I think I've gotten my various vitamin deficiencies under control. The result? MORE ENERGY! I still get tired and sleepy, but not nearly to the extent of feeling like a zombie.

However, I do have to come to you all with a problem:

Pretty much every night for the past month or so I wake up between the hours of 2 and 4 am. And can't. Fall. Back. Asleep.

I don't know if it's the weather changing (yay summer!), stress (waiting on responses from interviews/job is getting stressful), or vitamin overdose (is this possible? Should I stop taking B12?) but it's driving me up the wall!

I know this is really vague, but any and all responses will be awesome.

Some possibly relevant background: I'm taking B12, Vitamin C, Calcium, Vitamin D, and Iron supplements as well as Mutacil (or something fibery) for my recently diagnosed IBS.

I showed a severe vitamin D deficiency a few years back, but wasn't able to follow up on it, and I was diagnosed as borderline anemic.

I can't be losing anywhere from half an hour to hour and a half hour of sleep every night. If I'm exhausted enough I still wake up at night but I can manage to fall back asleep.
