Parents of ADHD Teens and Young Adults
Medication for 13 year old -every day or just school?
my finance’s 13 year old only takes his ADHD medication for school. On weekends, off his meds he gets very angry, loud, defiant, abusive and rude. I am thinking that perhaps he should take his medication every day- to help his brain chemistry- to help him, and help those around him- like the other children and the parents who have to listen to him go off. He is much better when he is on his meds.
