Can't Sleep At Weekends - Has Anyone Had This?

Hi guys, 
Right now here it's 5am and I've slept for only 1 or 2 hours despite going to bed at 11pm. I just can't seem to get to sleep properly but it's only Friday and Saturday nights. It's happened the last few weekends so today I'm going to go across to the US and buy a over-the-counter sleeping aid.
 
I've been trying to think of what factors could be affecting me but I don't do anything differently in the weekend evenings, I have had a few drinks on Fridays, but for example last night was only 1 large red wine.
 
Does anyone have any experience of anything similar, or could suggest any causes, or have any advice on a good sleeping aid?
 
The only benefit is that the West Ham game is on at 7:45am here so at least I am up early to watch that!
 
Any help will be greatly appreciated

    Ambien is a good sleeping tablet

    No after effects the next day

    im sorta the reverse. during the week i wake up 2/3 times a night and rarely get more than 5/6 hrs a night in total, and on the weekend i can get 7/8 solid hours. been harder lately with my guttering being in such a bad state its like having niagra falls outside my bedroom window when there is heavy rain

    I sleep but always wake up the same time as the week, 5:30.
     
    Very annoying.

    Thanks for the replies guys. I'm going to see if I can get some Ambien, or equivalent. 
     
    I have no problem at all about waking up early, providing I've had my 7-8 hours, but the problem I've been having for the last few weekend is either not actually being able to get to sleep at all, or going to bed at say midnight and waking up at 4am and not being able to go back to bed.
    I hate wasting the weekend sleeping for too much, all I need is enough and then I'm up and going.

    I have it mate, but because of a combination of things.

    • I stay up late through the week watching movies until the early hours.
    • I'm sober.
    • My gf's bed is too small and the panel at the bottom hurts my ankles (no paedo jokes please)

    So for the last hour and 45 mins I've been playing Tiny Wings & on Facebook on my iPhone while she sleeps. I'll doze off about 4am and be up around 7:30.
