This must be very frustrating, trying all the supposed experts, and getting apparently no agreed and convincing advice so far. I am weary of Occupational Therapists advising on whether someone has ADHD --- they are not trained or qualified to make any diagnosis at all. Why not consider trying the advice of the paediatrician and trying the medication to see if it has any useful effects ? This need not mean a very long-term committment to remaining on medication, but a wise trial of a medication for which there is a lot of good evidence of likely benefit.
I'm not familiar with Melotone, but if it tastes fishy, it could be one of several remedies with oil bases which some do find useful--- I found some encouraging evidence with regard to HiQ in this sort of situation
