Sleep and 1yr and 10 month old child

Good day

I need advice. My daugther is a very difficult sleeper and she wakes alot at night. Doctor prescribed melatonin which knocks her out almost immediatly from taking it, however she still wakes at night with terrors, crying.

Please let me know if there is some else that I can use that is potent enough to knock her out all night.

Please I am in need of some sleep.
