DD has been on ADHD meds for almost a year now. It has worked very well for her helping her to better keep still, focus more, and pay better attention in school. We have always given 7 days a week and even through the summer, but I'm starting to think that we should hold off and just give during school days or days when she actually does need help to extra keep still/focus/etc.
She has her med check appointment this Wednesday and I was planning to talk to the doctor about it, but being it's a controlled substance and there are all these restrictions, how in the world would they write a script to give on school days and then as needed on non-school days?
I would worry about not getting enough to cover all those days, but yet I'm sure it's not exactly okay to be left over with a few at the end of the month either.
If you give only on those days where your child needs the extra help, how is the prescription written?
