Subject: sleeping issues?

Hello everyone,

I’m new to this group. I’ve been reading a lot of your struggles with ADHD. Do any of your kids have sleeping problems? There is a website with a survey about ADHD and children you might want to check out: http://tiny.cc/bKZ0K

If your kids have sleeping issues because of their ADHD, how do you deal with it?

Ashley :)

12 son has sleeping issues (staying asleep). He takes ADHD Rx. We have started (Jan. 2009) a Rx called Zypraxia (spell?) Its in the Abilify family, but seems to help a lot. Our son is 5 feet and 80 lbs, so he only takes 3 mg.

Our family psychologist has mentioned a connection between sleeping disorders/problems and L.D.'s, but not much research, maybe more now.
