Difficulty sleeping after an evening workout is apparently really common, particularly among people who have some problems sleeping even without the workout. I agree with damnable -- I don't think that using chem or pharm to alter your level of consciousness is a good thing. It seems to me like when you do this, you're constantly slamming your body from different directions -- okay, I need to be alert now so here's a stimulant, I want to sleep now so here's a downer, etc. Your body is always trying to fight off the chem. Do a google search on insomnia -- there are several lifestyle changes that might possibly do what you need. Unfortunately, many people don't want to do what it takes to make those changes, so they say they "can't" and resort to the chem, and get less than ideal results.
