Discussions that mention adderall

Children's Health board

Thanks for the reply. He is currently taking Concerta (third week) and Clonidine at night to help him sleep. He has done a lot better during the day, but nights are not. His ped was going to put him on Strattera but when he went to the behavior specialist the next day for the first time he said he was too young. That's why he is on the concerta. We have tried the Adderall, but no luck. During the night he have night terrors and talks in his sleep. A lot of nights he will scream for me or my husband and when we go in his room he is sound asleep. He was so wore out last night I was sure he would sleep all night, but I was wrong. Here lately he wakes up constantly wanting something to eat or drink. If we don't give him a little something all he will do is scream. We've tried ignoring him, but he adventually wakes up the other tqo kids. I've got where I give him a little snack before he goes to bed and he still gets up. Thanks for any suggestions.
