SHS does not provide initial evaluation or treatment for ADD/ADHD.
However, SHS can provide a follow-up appointment and write prescriptions for the continuation of ADD/ADHD treatment only when specific criteria are met.
Students who are requesting stimulant medications for the treatment of ADD/ADHD must have:
- Documentation of ADD/ADHD Diagnosis and Treatment form completed and signed by their psychiatrist, physician or psychologist.
- A completed consent form which allows your health care provider to send required information to Student Health Services.
- A Cardiovascular screening assessment for risk of stimulant medication and a cardiac examination. This may be performed at SHS. Please complete the Cardiovascular Screening Form before your appointment. A fee may be incurred if an EKG is needed.
While waiting for the required documents, a one-time prescription for one month only can be written if you have any evidence that you were previously prescribed the requested medication (for example a medicine bottle).
If the documentation is approved, you will be required to read and sign the ADD/ADHD Medication Contract.
Prescriptions can be filled on a monthly basis, an appointment is required.
No replacements for lost or stolen prescriptions or medications.
If the required documentation is not approved by Student Health Services, the student will be referred to their previous provider or to a community provider.
