Sleeping pills at 8 yrs. old? That will be trouble down the road, I assure you since sleeping pills are very addictive and can cause severe dependancy. Worse than that, they stop working at some point (tolerance) and the original insomnia itself worsens, as does tolerance even at higher dosages. These medictions are in the same family as benzodiazepines, aka downers or tranquilizers like Valium.

Most of the time ADD medications will be too stimulating; amphetamines are uppers and meds like Strattera, although not classed as stimulants, are still very stimulating to the nervous system since they are antidepressants(meant to energize the very depressed person) so insomnia and sleep disoders are typical of those meds.
