In brief: Depends on problem

The answer depending on whether your problem is trouble falling asleep vs.
Staying asleep vs sleeping at the correct time, etc. There are medical problems like sleep apnea that can affect your sleep and sleeping pills won't solve this. No matter what the cause, paying close attention to your sleep hygiene is always important and you can find loads of information on this topic on the web.
