My eight year old son takes 15 mg (patch form) Daytrana. We leave it on for 9 hrs. Well he is having an awful time going to sleep at night. His doctor said to leave the patch on until 5-6 pm so he doesn't get all worked up right before bed. Because at first that was the problem when we would take it off at 4pm. He would be all wired by 7pm and be HELL to get down. Now it seems he can't go to sleep still ! What do I do now ? There isn't the option of not using the meds. His ADHD is just too severe for him to go off the meds. I'm really worried about this insommnia though. ::::sigh:::: Any help or suggestions would really be appreciated from any of you.

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
