My question is what can I take to attempt to get back on track with my sleep. I have had troubles for the last year staying asleep which causes fatigue through out the day. My MD would like me to try Xanax versus a sleeping pill because a: I can fall asleep fine and b: when I wake I may not have time to take a fast acting medication. As a controller the work schedule is varied. My MD felt and anti-anxiety medication would be more appropriate but I am fairly certain this means a long time off the boards. What is the impact of taking this med and is there anything that won't impact my medical for such a duration.

Thanks
