what do you give your kids to help them sleep at night????
I have 2 kids both have adhd. My daughter is 13 and always has trouble sleeping don't go to sleep until at least 11pm and is up at 3 am. and my son is on meds to help him sleep but it don't seem to be working anymore. He took his script meds at 7:45 and it is now 11:20 and he is still awake. My husband says we need to up his dosage but i don't want to. I would prefer to take him off of the meds being that he already3 different meds as it and i would love to take him off of that one.
So what do you give your kids to help them sleep at night.
Thanksedit my son is 9 almost 10. he has adhd, ODD, and bipolar. He takes meds for his adhd and bipolar in the morning and take a small dosage of meds at 1 at school for his adhd. at 7:45 we give clonidine to help him sleep and his bedtime is 8pm. they eat at 6 take showers at 7 and bed at 8. it has been like that since they started school. they have to get up at 6am. my daughter get on the bus at 7 and my son get up at 7 to get ready for school. I don't want to add another meds, i want to take him off of the clonidine and possible put him on something over the counter so we won't have to up the clonidine. i would like to get him off of some of his meds.
