Medication! This is always such a hard topic for EVERYONE. So I asked my Facebook community to share their actual experiences of medication; asking what medication, what worked and it long it took to work. I know this is a HARD topic but would love people to share and support others. As a teacher I have seen both the positives and negatives for kids and how it tricky it is to find the right medication for each child.
