Does anyone have any suggestions to how to deal with a 10 year old who has severe ADHD that will not sleep in his own bed or if he gets invited to someones house to spend the night will not leave my side?

My 8 year old is kind of the same way. He is extremely scared of the dark! I have him on Concerta and at night I give him Chlonodine to help him sleep. It used to be impossible to get him to sleep in his own bed. I put a fish tank in his room that lights up. I also bought him a globe lamp that lights up too. And I let him fall asleep to the TV music channel ( something relaxing). Make it fun for him and when he stays the night at friends house, get him his own sleeping bag and maybe tell the kids' parents to leave a light on at night....

My 5 year old son who has adhd and odd is on Mirtzapine to help him sleep. He doesn't sleep good without it at all. He has been on it for about 6 months now and when we ever run out of it and he doesn't get it I can tell the difference. It really helps him alot.
