Insomnia : Try taking your meds in the am but the only problem of taking Dramamine nightly is tat your body will get used to it and it will stop working. Good Luck

No: There are better ways to treat insomnia. Nightly usage of Dramamine is not recommended

Not great: Your ADHD med and prozac should be taken in the am. If they still cause insomnia speak to your prescriber and get something different . 500mg of magnesium may help also routine consistent sleep schedule to begin
