Does my child with ADHD need to stay in touch with his doctor after moving away?

ANSWER

He should stay in touch with his doctor. His doctor needs to know if something changes with his symptoms or side effects. If he's far from home, he can check in by phone or email, or he can ask his doctor to recommend another ADHD health professional closer to him who can check on how he's doing.
