Yes: Sometimes prednisolone and other steroid products can cause insomnia or restless sleep. While allegra (fexofenadine) is an antihistamine and has a potential for drowsiness , it is of low potential. It is ok to take valium at night but I would not do it indefinitely because can be habit forming.
