You might want to switch meds to Ritlin or something with a shorter life span. Ritlin comes in a 20mg sustain release dose that works well and you dont have to remember your mid’-day dose.Or maybe taking the Concerta earlier. I know with my kids…I have to give them the medicine by 8 AM or it will keep them awake. If time permits, try exercising in the evening after dinner to use up some of the leftover energy. Melatonin is great and cheap at Walmarts. There are natural blends at Health Food stores of Melatonin, Valerian root, and Chamomile. Come in teas or pill form. Good luck and God Bless.REPORT ABUSE
