13 Survival Tips from College Graduates with ADHD

College is not a time to wait and see what happens. It is a time to plan, prepare, and anticipate every conceivable ADHD-related challenge. Begin by following these guidelines for teens leaving the house and living independently for the first time. They could save you a lot of anguish — and money.

Make a Med Plan

Managing meds is one of the biggest challenges ADHD college students face. Decide which doctor you'll use to manage your meds. If your pediatrician has been managing it, or if you are attending an out-of-state college, transfer your care locally. Call the college health center to see if they will handle it for you. Once you know your schedule, develop a plan with your doctor that includes optimum coverage for classes, studying, and extracurricular activities.
