Medication is really not the answer for anyone, least of all a child. He is just going to develope a dependancy on the drug.

Please go to your pediatrician - he needs to first check that there is nothing physically wrong. After that, he will be able to advise you about various techniques to use to get your child used to the idea of not coming to your bed.
