My DD has never slept well but we have coped with melatonin and alimemazine prescribed by paed
She takes a very small amount of the alimemazine, only 2.5ml
The NHS trust are now refusing to supply and I am trying to wean her off it. We are into our 4th week of no sleep and both of us are exhausted
And that's with her having a reduced dose

The alimemazine is a strong antihistamine. Has anyone found anything similar?
We have tried lots of non medical stuff over the years
