Not effectively: Both the tads and torida studies (depression treatment studies conducted by nimh) demonstrate maximum improvement in symptoms when medication is used in combination with cognitive behavioral therapy.

It is not optimal: Every day is a day for learning - be it academic learning in a classroom or social learning amongst peers and family members. It is ideal to be as free from distraction and impulsivity as possible in all settings, every day.

Yes, it's possible. : Some of the medicines used for adhd can cause side effects which may impact a child's sleep. Always review side effects and risks of new medications with your doctor and monitor your child for changes in behavior (and mood) with changes in and new starts of medication. Also, kids (and adults) with adhd often have difficulty winding down and getting to sleep as part of their adhd symptoms.
