Re: need opinions...i called cps...
      08/24/11 06:48 PM

I spoke with my son's pediatrician and his therapist and they both stated they would NEVER tell son's father that it would be ok to give our son his (father's) ritalin. They also said that they have NOT spoken with father about any problems with son at all. I have sole legal custody so any changes or treatment has to be approved by me to begin with.

On a side note...Son has made honor roll, played in the school band, an accomplished cub scout and a dynamite baseball player.

I don't like ADHD medications but I feel that during the most constructive part of the day, it is important for son to feel like he has more control of himself, so he takes vyvanse. In the evening when it wears off, he gets a good dinner and a very structured evening full of activities and one on one and it works very well.

The bottom line is that I am very afraid of the casual attitude of his father in regards to sharing his medication. One, this is ritalin, it is a controlled substance. Son should NEVER be "comfortable" taking someone else's meds. And a parent should NEVER offer theirs. I don't care if it is a prescribed antibiotic ointment, or an antihistamine...I don't care...it is against the law for a reason.
