For parents

To help take care of your child’s emotional health:2

  • Be available for your children
  • Let your kids know you’re listening
  • Respond in a way your children will hear

Things change—and the medicine a child takes may need to change, too

To help manage mood, anger, attention, or sleep problems, some children take psychotropic medicine, which often is used to treat:

  • Anxiety
  • Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Depression

Over time, your child may:

  • No longer need to take the medicine or
  • Need to take a different dosage of the medicine

During a well visit, a doctor will ask:

  • About any medicine that a child takes
  • Why the child takes the medicine
  • If the child responds well or not to the medicine

You and your child’s doctor will decide together when your child should start or stop taking a specific medicine. This is called deprescribing.

To help make sure your child takes the right medicine at the right time:

  • Talk to your child’s doctor
  • Keep track of your child’s medicine
  • Make sure your child takes medicine as prescribed
