    I am a nurse. The 30 min rule is what is used in the hospital, and usually applies to those drugs that are on a timed schedule several times a day, like every 4 hours for example. It is there to ensure a medication does not get given twice in one hour for example.
    I now work in the school system. If I were you I would have the doctor change the order to once daily. That way it gets administrated once period. Is there any way this could even be given at home? My son takes a lot of medications but we give them all at home that way we don’t have to deal with school staff. Good luck.

    You could have written this for us. 16 years old here, sophomore, always has been at or close to a 4.0 GPA. Has always aspired to study astrophysics and go to MIT. This year F across the board, no motivation, no longer wants to go to college. He feels school is boring and a waste of time, that college is going to be more boring school, to lead to a boring job. No help from anyone, I feel Sped is failing him. lots of behaviors… No one implements his IEP… I am worn out. In fact, I think the school has become an adversarial environment, a passive aggressive place where I am no longer sure I can believe what I hear from some of the adults there. I am seriously considering home schooling. It may turn out to be a huge mistake as he has zero motivation, but let’s face it he is not doing anything there either… has anyone been successful with homeschooling their unmotivated teens?
    Thank you.
