Our seven-year-old son has severe ADHD and we give him melatonin to help him calm down and sleep at night after his meds wear off. Well, yesterday and today, he threw us a real zinger. The melatonin did absolutely nothing and he literally stayed up the entire night. He was hyper and whistling in his room. He came in and woke us a few times. When I got up at 5:45 am for work, he was still up. I gave him his meds this morning and he's still more hyper than usual (meds usually solve it). I had to keep him home from camp because I just didn't know what to expect from him.
I have a call in to his psychiatrist, but unfortunately her normally accessible nurse is on vacation, so I've had no word. Just wondering if anyone has gone through anything remotely similar with their ADHD child? I thought we'd been through everything with our son -- ADHD, OCD, depression, encopresis, extreme picky eating, sensory issues -- but this one has me baffled.
