The stress, related to school, causes the insomnia. Last year when this happened for the first time she became clinically depressed. I wouldn't allow her to take the only thing she said worked for her - Night time Nyquil. It is contraindicated with Adderall. The psychiatrist's meds scared her and she refused to take them, waiting the depression out and ruining her grades in the process. I've tried Sleepytime tea, light dinners, zinc capsules with no success. Just started her on a calcium+magnesium vitamin supplement. Is there anything else I can do or are more meds the answer?
You could try melatonin. It's not even a prescription med. You'll find it on the aisle next to vitamins and nutritional supplements. It's a natural remedy that helps many people combat insomnia. That would be the safest thing I can think of since you really don't want her on more meds. Good luck. I hope this helps.
