Encourage follow-up care for your pediatric patients taking an ADHD medication

August 24, 2020

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that parents of children receiving medication for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) follow three important tips regarding follow-up care:

  1. Keep talking about meds.
  2. Track your child’s progress.
  3. Be patient and flexible.

Independence recently shared this information with parents through the summer 2020 edition of healthy kids now.

In addition, providers are encouraged to follow the Magellan Healthcare, Inc. Clinical Practice Guidelines and treatment guidelines for ADHD in children, adolescents, and adults:
