My DD has ADHD and the psychiatrist reccomended it for bedtimes (which are rough). The bottle says not to use if under 18 years old....my DD is 6.
DD has ADHD as well. We started at 3 with a dosage rec of 1 to 3mg. Now we have increased the dosage with age. We use a dissovable tablet after trying liquid and another capsule.
Did your doc recommend a dose? Ask if not...
Nada here. For DS or me. Most of the clinicians I know suggest no more than 2 weeks on melatonin at a time or it ceases to work. The plan is to use it to help sleep train around a new protocol.
We do, our pedi told us no more then 10mg and we have to use it combined with a few other things. I think we finally found a set up, since his wake ups are back down to 1-2 times a night instead of the 6-9 times we were at without it.
FWIW, melatonin alone doesn't work.
