In brief: Not always...

It is not always safe to take sleeping aids when you have chronic bronchitis, a form of copd.
To determine if these meds are safe in your case and which meds are ok in your case, you need to ask your own doctor. Your disease severity, including your oxygen and carbon dioxide levels, needs to be known in order to answer this question specifically!

Sleeping meds can depress respiration which is already compromised in chronic bronchitis.
Talk to your doctor.
