When all else fails, a temporary regime of sleep aids can help you reset your natural bedtime rhythm when used responsibly and under the supervision of a physician. Pain relievers can alleviate joint pain and sleep medications can help you fall and stay asleep. Drugs that treat arthritis, most commonly the corticosteroid prednisone, can cause insomnia and agitation for some people. Some people sleep better when they take their medicines in the morning.
