I am new to the group. My daughter is 7 and was diagnosed with ADHD last spring.
We just decided to medicate last week, we started with Adderall per the recommendation of the doctor.
We've been having sleep issues before we even started the medication. She either can't stay asleep or wakes up throughout the night, or wakes up super early.
She goes to bed around 730-8pm school nights and maybe 9pm weekends. She just woke up at 1030 and said she couldn't sleep. I'm trying some melatonin tonight.
Or she's waking up at like 5am.
Does anyone else have this problem with sleep with their ADHD child? I thought being on the medication would actually allow her to sleep at night, but I'm not seeing a difference here. Her Adderall is out of her system by 1pm... (we're still titrating at this point).
