In brief: Sort of

There are very few sleep medications that approved for use in teens.
Medication may not be the answer. Keeping consistent sleep times, not watching tv one hour before bed, "unplugging" from all electronics one hour before bed and morning time exercise can fix may sleep problems. Many teens can also be helped with melatonin.
