My DD struggles with sleep
She has had melatonin prescribed for about a year and it will get her to sleep but not keep her asleep (it is in medicine form)
We have had terrible nights since about a month before xmas
I contacted DD's paed and she prescribed valergen and told me (I thought) that she could have that and melatonin
I was worried that I had not heard her correctly and didn't give both and it was taking 3-4 hours for her to get to sleep
Paed is off work now so I contacted her GP who said the same that they could be given together
I did this last night and we had our first nights sleep in ages but I couldn't sleep for worrying about her having 2 medications!
Does anyone else use the 2 together?
Even with GP and paed saying its OK I am still worried

yes they are fine together. ds has been taking 8ml of melatonin with 1ml of alimemazine which is another version of vallergan I think and has been doing so for years.
