If they have the medication in stock, ask the pharmacy to set aside some pills for a prescription that is about to be filled. A phone call to the pharmacy ahead of time can help students receive the ADHD medication they need even when stock is running low. This is especially important considering there is a nationwide shortage for these drugs.
