Problem: You and Your Partner Disagree About ADHD Medication

ADDitude Magazine

In the case of an ADHD child,if one parent feels strongly that she shouldn’t be taking ADHD medication and expresses that to your child, there may be a serious problem. If the child has conflicting views about the benefits of medication, he might stop taking it or question why he has to take it. If you're an adult with ADHD and your partner doesn't believe you need medication, it can create tension in your relationship or cause you to suffer difficulties in other areas of your life. Set up an appointment with your doctor to discuss the ADHD diagnosis and the value of medication with your partner.
