In brief: Absolutely

Because your adrenals are not quite up to par, your hormone levels are a bit off, which means that your "sleep architecture" is disrupted.
But if you sleep in the dark (including night lights), turn off all electronics well before bedtime, take a warm bath before bed, keep the room temperature down, clear your head of intrusive thoughts, and maintain a regular sleep schedule, you should be fine.

In brief: Yes

If properly treated, you should have no problem with sleep with addisons.
Follow your doctor's instructions. Don't overdo the steroids.
