Yes: the medrol can make you more hyper and therefore make it harder for you to sleep, so Xanax (alprazolam) may be helpful

Possibly: XAnax (alprazolam) can help with sleep. However you should be in touch with the prescriberabout changing any doses or times, since it is a highly addictive medicine.
