Yes : Time control medicines for sleep cannot be prescribed online. Medications like I am Vistaril and possibly trazodone can be prescribed online. Do a Consult on HealthTap for specific advice

Sleep hygeine: First, identity why you are not sleeping well. Stress, caffeine, illness, late night activity (screen time or exercise). Identify causes and try to remove these. No caffeine after lunch. No screen time within 1 hour of bed. OTC meds are a good place to start. Melatonin and diphenhydramine (Benadryl) are common choices. Prescription meds considered after in-person discussion with a physician.
