Probably not: At least not in the usual doses. The high tolerance and use of xanax, (alprazolam) a notoriously short-acting drug where when it wears off, worse insomnia occurs, may be the cause of your sleep problems. Adding more drugs to problems being caused by drugs is a sure way to enter a vicious cycle of escalating doses, escalating dependency, increasing side effects and problems with addiction and its complications.
