We have had to resort to a RX drug (trazadone) to try and help our 10 yr old get to sleep when he uses huis adhd drugs for school. Any other ideas or ones relating to trazadone to help with this unfortunate side effect of the ADHD drugs? Penny

Is Adderall the only thing that works for him? We have had similar problems. It took us waking our son up at 5 am and giving him his meds so it could wear off in-time for bed. We also noticed if he drank too little water the drug lingered longer in his system. I worry too much about stacking the meds on top of each other. If these ideas hadn't worked we would have had him taken of his current meds. Good luck, each kid is different.
