Parents of ADHD Children
Melatonin for Sleep
Has anyone used melatonin with their ADHD children to aid in their sleep? The Dr suggested we try 1mg for my 7yo and work our way up. I gave my daughter 1mg two nights in a row and both nights it KONKED her right out! Last night she was very emotional, cried a little, said she didn’t “feel like herself” and fell asleep. Wondering what other parents have experienced. I guess it’s nice that she fell asleep right away… but I don’t want it to make her feel weird.
