He takes 15 mg but I dint like the fact that he seems down all the time don't get me wrong he's doing a lot better in school but I wanted to know if it was ok to not give him the pill onthe weekend or the days that he's not in school???
I agree with the aforementioned poster about your son seeming down; maybe the dose needs to be reduced some, medicaiton still be beneficial, but not make him down or sad.
It does not hurt to skip a dose once in a while; some parents do not administer the medications on the weekends, like a small drug holiday. First, however, check with your provider to ensure that this is acceptable for your child.
