ADD/ADHD Medication

Student Health Services does not provide initial evaluation or treatment for ADD/ADHD.

When specific criteria are met, Student Health can provide follow-up appointments and write prescriptions for the continuation of ADD/ADHD treatment.

ADD/ADHD Medication Criteria

Students who are requesting stimulant medications for the treatment of ADD/ADHD must have:

  1. Documentation of ADD/ADHD Diagnosis and Treatment Form completed and signed by their psychiatrist, physician or psychologist.
  2. A completed Consent Form which allows your health care provider to send required information to Student Health Services.
  3. A Cardiovascular screening assessment for risk of stimulant medication and a cardiac examination. This may be performed at Student Health Services. Please complete the Cardiovascular Screening Form before your appointment. A fee may be incurred if an EKG is needed.

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.

Student Health does not provide replacements for lost or stolen prescriptions or medications.

While waiting for the required documents, a one-time prescription for one month can be written only if you have evidence that you were previously prescribed the requested medication (for example, a medicine bottle).

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.
