With insomnia ? He's on clonidine , melatonin turned out to be a terrible idea. He still gets up in the morning because he's never been asleep. His grades do not fall, he's got a fan, the darkest room in the whole house. Yes, there is a schedule, pretty strict, actually.... No caffiene after five, electronics off an hour before bedtime, hot shower... The whole thing.
It's not anxiety, he swears it's under control. , that he doesn't stress over his classes or friend issues.
I'll mention he's had it of and on and since 4th grade when we were given clonidine and we've added herbal tea.
It's just kids are noticing the " raccoon eyes" developing. Besides another dr appt, what else can I do?
