Many people automatically assume that their insomnia is due to mania/ hypomania or their PTSD? But there can be co-occuring sleep conditions. Have your spoken to a sleep medicine specialist?

You need to see a sleep medicine doctor and examine your sleep hygiene. If adhd is contributing to your adhd, treating adhd can help your sleep
