We Will Be Here For You

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak may be stressful for all of us. CHADD is here to help. During these times of uncertainty, the level of anxiety caused by the virus may become problematic, as our ability to focus on our work, studies, and home may become more difficult. During this time, our home life may be disrupted.

Concerns about medication and treatment can create added stress for families affected by ADHD. While we’re often advised to obtain a three-month supply of prescribed medications, that is not possible for Schedule II controlled substances, which include certain medications for ADHD. According to the Pharmacist’s Manual, a prescriber may issue multiple prescriptions authorizing a patient to receive up to a 90-day supply of a Schedule II controlled substance; however, the following conditions apply: (1) every prescription must be written separately for each 30-day supply; (2) the prescriber must indicate the earliest date the pharmacy can fill each prescription.

We would like to share the following resources and suggestions to help support you and your family:

Protect Yourself and Your Family 
Worried and Preoccupied? You Can Reduce Anxiety and Live More Confidently
Create Calm: It Really Matters! 
ADHD and Homeschooling
Telehealth for ADHD?
How to Talk to Your Child About Scary Events 

CHADD is committed to continuing to be the resource on which you can rely. We will continue to share information with you. Stay with your families, be healthy and safe. Remember to talk with your provider about treatment during this time.

Patricia M. Hudak, President-Elect, Board of Directors
