Destress Falling asleep can be a real challenge for many people with Attention Deficit Disorder. There are just so many thoughts going through the mind of a person with ADD. Sometimes we need help slowing those thoughts down before we can actually get to sleep. Some people have found their own ways to do this like reading or watching TV.

Music can also be very helpful too. I have found a great CD called Music to De-stress which has a sedating effect on me. It has helped me to fall asleep on many occasions. There’s also a similar CD called Music to Relax which has helped me to relax but hasn’t been as helpful to fall asleep to as Music to De-stress.

    • Actually I am amazed at how Ritalin has helped me sleep. It quiets the “Mind Storms” of my brain. I take 10 MG. at meals, three times a day, since July 20, 2005.

      If I get to bed by 11.00pm I sleep right through the night and get 8 hours or more sleep. If I stay up only slightly later, I might be up all night or get only 2 or 3 hours sleep.

      For 15 years I took a sleeping pill but usually felt groggy in the morning. I haven’t needed one since starting on Ritalin in July.

      For most of my life, I seldom got more than 4 hours sleep a night. Ritalin is simply amazing in my opinion.

      Best wishes
