How long would a sleep med stay in a childs system would it give me enough time to take him to a dr. To draw blood and find out if this is happening?
Don't drug: Unless your child is under what we call deep sedation or general anesthesia, no med is going to make him oblivious to the fact you are sticking a needle in his arm.

Tell yourself this is for their well-being, and then do it. ...Read more
