I appreciate you reluctance to medicate your daughter and commend her on
Making it this far without medication but I think it’s time you let her give the medicine a try. I suggest starting with non-stimulants and if there is no improvement then move to stimulants. I wish I didn’t have to take medication everyday to function and succeed but I do and that’s just how it is.
Give it a chance – I think all of you will find it will change her life for the better. And if it doesn’t then at least you gave it a try.
