Growing Out of ADHD
“My 15-year-old has been fine without medication for the past two months. Is it possible that he has outgrown AD/HD?”
Although the reasons are unclear, some adolescents do seem to outgrow the need for medication. I suggest keeping him off, but monitor him closely as the school year progresses. If symptoms return, he should restart medication. His doctor can determine whether a lower dose may be sufficient.
