ADHD

What is ADHD?

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common childhood disorders and can continue through adolescence and adulthood. Symptoms include difficulty staying focused and paying attention, difficulty controlling behavior, and hyperactivity (over-activity).

ADHD Treatment Options

Physicians can mail a prescription to the pharmacist at Walmart on Campus, who will hold the prescription for the student and fill according to the prescription and date. Must be the original, on paper, not faxed, phoned in or e-mailed.
