Okay, he's my almost 11 year old "baby" lol. He's taking methylphenidate. He has been for about a year now. But recently (like the past week or so) he hasn't been able to sleep. He said when he lays down and closes his eyes, they won't stay closed. The poor kid. We've tried bathtime w/lavender, milk, turkey sandwich, going to bed earlier, staying up LATE until he was tired. Nothing. I get up at 5:00am to get ready for work. I woke up and there he was, sitting at the table eating a bowl of cereal.
Some nights DH checks on him when he gets home (2-3am) and he has been awake some of those nights. I don't know if it's the medication, or something else going on, but it's scaring me. Should I tell the doctor and get him off?
This medication has been the only one that has worked as far as not making him feel "weird" at all, and our insurance doesn't cover any other kinds besides that and the ones that make him feel weird.
