Parents of ADHD Children
Disrupted sleep every night!
My ADHD son who is almost 7 years old has always been a terrible sleeper! I have tried everything - including lavender room sprays, Melantonin drops, warm baths, massages, etc. He wakes most nights during the night, or wakes around 5am. The Melantonin drops helps with getting him to sleep BUT doesn’t sustain his sleep. The doctor says there isn’t anything that he can prescribe. I have recently put him on herbal medication but after one month, his body became use to it and he went back to his terrible sleeping patterns. I just put him on new herbal medicine that contains Valerian but I am worried about long terms side effects. Please help with any advice as I’m going crazy with this sleep deprivation.
