Medication Matters

A teacher comes to you stating that a child in her class is extremely hyper, could you please talk to his parents to medicate him! What would your response be? A pediatrician sends in an order to take blood pressure for a child on a new medication. After reviewing the medications, which class of medications would need blood pressure checks? A parent wants you to give ½ of the dose prescribed by the pediatrician because they think it is too much. What would you do? Another parents asks you to give the medication only on days when you think her child really needs it, because it is so expensive. Who would you collaborate with to help this family?
