If money is a problem, you might want to check with your County Mental Services agency (as noted above.) Sometimes they offer lower income families free or very reduced cost medical care. If you just need a prescription, you could get your existing doctor to write one, or you could try the "doc-in-a box." The doc-in-a-box are retail-store based clinics they have at some pharmacies, like CVS. They can write prescriptions for your child for about $50. These are also good for strep, measles, stuff that is easily diagnosed. Take the prescription to Walmart, and you can save money on the doctor and the meds (assuming you don't have insurance.) Save your receipt and you may be able to deduct this from your taxes. http://www.minuteclinic.com/en/USA/. If you don't have CVS, search Google for pharmacies in your area that offer this. If money is too tight, while you save $, jogging before and after school. Prayer.
