dmgibson83,

Does daughter have sleep problems only on Ritalin? Is the Ritalin causing the sleep problems?

Re: benadryl and ritalin

My daughter takes Concerta for ADHD. I spoke with a pharmacist about her taking benadryl and he said it was fine. She actually needed the benadryl for allergies. She does not sleep well since being on the Concerta so her Dr. prescribed Clonidine at bedtime to help her sleep.
