Hello and thank you for sending your question.

I can appreciate your dealing with a very frustrating situation.

Depending on the age of your son you might consider using low-dose Benadryl to help with sleep. Please use the manufacturers guidelines and dosing schedule as outlined on the box.

Sometimes a very low dose of this medication might significantly improve the ability to sleep.

Thanks again for sending your question. Please let me know if you have any additional specific concerns.
