  • KarenHello Christina,

    The situation you are describing, if accurate, is a very big problem. The child is not receiving his prescribed treatment for ADHD. This is a situation his mother needs to address with his father, and may require her to consult with her attorney.

    The second part, if someone is selling a another person's medication, is illegal. Concerta is a stimulant medication and regulated by law. If someone is discovered by police to be selling a prescription medication illegally, they will not hesitate to make an arrest.

    As for taking it to the police or the courthouse, your sister should discuss it with her family attorney on how either action could affect her family and especially her son. We cannot advise you or your sister on which step to take, she needs to seek legal advise.

    Best wishes in a difficult situation.
