    has anyone ever used valerian root to help with their adhd difficult child for hyperactivity and sleep. I was recommended this since no other medications have work on my difficult child. Any info would be greatly appreciated

    I can't say a thing about it for ADHD, they gave it to my husband to help him sleep after heart surgery.It made him break out in a rash on his face. That is a side effect of Plavix ( a heart medication he was on too) scared us to death.
    As soon as he stopped the valerian root the rash went away. It did not help him sleep either.
    Just thought I would throw that in.
    When my difficult child was in school some teachers swore by coffee.
