I just want to report on our experiences with Strattera and Ritalin LA. We've been reluctant to give our 8 year old son any meds and have tried the various herbal, etc. methods but found no success.

So we tried Strattera for 6 weeks but again got no results besides drowsiness and stomach aches.

Our son was still having problems attending to task at school so we tried Ritalin LA (long acting). It worked great during the day -- his teacher noticed a fantastic improvement. But he had problems falling asleep at night and normally he is a great sleeper.

So I have a call into his pediatrian to see if we can lower the dose. It is currently at 20mg.

What do you all do to help your children on Ritalin to sleep at a normal time?

Hope for the best.
