What time do you....

I was wondering, i know that alot of your children are taking medication for sleep difficulties but what time do you give them the medicine...
Keegan has been taking them for 1 week now, he has to take 2 tabs to help with sleep.
Monday night I gave him the tablet at 8.30 and by 10 he was sparko. But the rest of the week i have been given it to him earlier because on tuesday night gave him the tablets at 8.30 he did not sleep until 11.30,
Wed night i gave it to him at 8.00 and he did not sleep until 1.30
I have now been giving him the tablets earlier and earlier and tonight he went swimming all afternoon and gave him the tablet at 7.00 he is still stimming upstairs, i thought with all the swimming it would make him tired but not him he is still on the go and this is what i was saying to the dr it takes him so long to wind down, he just cant switch off.
Have any of you found the same happens??? He usually reacts to medicines so i was very wary of giving him these... My father has been prescribed the same tablets and he is a big man (about 18 stone) and the tablets knocked him out until 1 o clock the next day....

When he was much younger I used to try to give it to him earlier probably too early and it never worked.
I've found giving it nearer the time the child would go to sleep is better
