Stilll sleeping most of the afternoon

Hi everyone, I have had problems with fatigue since being diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2017, I have been on simenet, and now stalevo , the change of medication was meant to give me more time active, but I start wearing off about 11am, and by 1230am am ready for a sleep, I wake up feeling awful, and am wearing off again in anticipation of my 4pm dose, I wake up a little more after my tea meal and have little more energy in the evenings , this is really frustrating because I am just wasting time. Has anyone got any advice.
