ya, everyone have same situation. Just someone have little less and someone have little more.
Just stick to FA and important topics notes.
Regarding sleep. Personal recommendation (applies to those who feel sleepy while studying). Open a boring pathetic chapter or topic and read for sometime (micro always help me in that). Just kidding
try to get some sleep dude. Next morning you will feel much better. Good luck
I recommend don't go for any med.

Ya revision is changes from person to person. Your plan seems perfect. Just one recommendation. Kaplan do have some extra stuff too. So don't go digging on that. I think in last days time management is most important.
Best of luck

@koolkiller do you suggest second read of kaplan is not worth the time?coz i am planning to revise all subjects for 45 days?you think doing FA and Uworld time and again is better option than revising kaplan all over again? plz advice

reviewing kaplan is worth doing but if you have time or you can skip some topics like micro, immuno. Which according to people mostly asked from FA only. So if you have remember and able to integrate all give in FA for this subjects. I would rather suggest practicing more questions.

But biochem and B.S. kinda subjects are not well given in FA. So doing from Kaplan is always worthied.

Above all i am also preparing like you guys. So its just my opinion. Everything depends on you.
one more thing, Don't keep on reviewing things which you are good at, Just to get comfort that you know stuff (not pointing anyone, Just saying what i used to do basically). Work on your week points.
best of luck

Exams are not panic.I think you must revise with all things and after that make your mind fresh.
