The purpose

Over 10% of children in the United States are diagnosed with ADHD, and nearly half of these children have moderate to severe impairments in sleep, further exacerbating their already impaired academic, emotional and social functioning. In children with ADHD, 34% of prescribed sleep medications are antipsychotics that can cause marked weight gain and metabolic changes; alternate medications have either been found to be ineffective, difficult to tolerate or are largely unstudied in youth. Delayed sleep onset is strongly correlated with active symptoms of ADHD and Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD), suggesting that better control of disruptive behaviors could improve sleep patterns and this application will assess if the extension of the therapeutic effects of CNS stimulants into the early evening improves sleep onset.
