I have long had trouble falling asleep, and also I have ADHD.

Recently I've found that taking methylphenidate and melatonin before going to bed helps me fall asleep, however it has caused me to sometimes wake up in the middle of the night, which hasn't really happened before I started doing this.

I've been hoping it will just go away and I will sleep soundly again, which might be naive, idk.

If I keep taking these pills but I stop waking up in the middle of the night, this market resolves NO.

If I keep taking these pills and I keep waking up in the middle of the night, this market resolves YES.

If I stop taking these pills, this market resolves N/A, unless I stop taking them because I was waking up in the middle of the night, in which case it resolves YES.

Try reducing the melatonin dosage.

@happypotamus Currently it's 3 mg, which is already very small.
