My son has ADHD with anxiety, as do I. I think what you are doing is wonderful, but if it’s not working, you’ve got to change something else, too. We have found that giving melatonin just 30 minutes before bedtime works best. If it has been too long since taking melatonin, my son and I both struggle to sleep, as if it has the opposite effect. We also use the OLLY sleep gummies, and they are AMAZING! They work really well for my son and me both. They also have a focus gummy that we sometimes use if ADHD medication alone is not helping. My coworker just started using a weighted blanket for her son with ADHD, and she says that’s been really helpful. We are going to try one. It might help you all, too. Good luck! I know how challenging and frustrating it can be trying to get a good night’s rest!
