Ds just started taking adderall this weekend. Today, I gave him the pill and he said he took it.... except after I dropped him off at school- after talking with the clinic to watch out for anything outta the ordinary- I come home to see his pill on the kitchen floor.

Idk what to do, how to get him to actually take the pill, and his lying.


Since people think I didn't watch him.... I watched him put the pill in his mouth... watched him take a drink and swallow it... he opened his mouth to show me that there wasn't a pill in there. There was no pill in his mouth, moved his tongue around and everything.

Maybe have a talk with him about how it makes him feel and see why he doesn't want to take it.

My son takes his medicine with me standing next to him until it's gone. Not that hard of a concept.

You stand there next to him and make sure he takes it.  Is that too much effort for you?

Watch him and make sure he doesn't cheek it.  Every single time.

For the most part, I did. I honestly thought he took it- it was in his mouth, he took the drink, then he showed me the inside of his mouth. There was no pill in there.
