In brief: Not really

You could get addicted to sleeping pills.
It is better to find out why do you cannot sleep and fix that. Talk to your doctor.

In brief: PILLS PILLS PILLS

You are eighteen years old.
If you were 80 years old the answer would be the same. No. Your body needs sleep every day. If you have lost the natural ability to sleep then you must work to relearn this normal and natural part of being a human. I know of no 18 year old who should be on any kind of sleeping medication.
