My daughter is not the parent of an ADHD child. She is the caregiver so she had a few pills on her in the event she needed it for her roommates child. She didn't know the effects on non-ADHD people. My post was simply a warning. I often carry tiny pill containers in my purse that contain pain medication - no RX container or label. I never even considered that this could put me in jail. Or that carrying a pill for my mom that is with me could also put me in jail. Yes it could all be straightened our in court with proof of prescription but why go thru the hassle when you can just as easy be prepared and have it in the properly marked container.
It depends on the drug.
As a caregiver, it would have been nice for her to know that it is a drug of abuse, and therefore keep it more controlled.
As for pain reliever, it depends. If it is a narcotic, I would not carry it unless it was in a CURRENT prescription bottle.
This would include any of the oxycontin, codeine, or morphine based pain killers.
But non-narcotic or drugs that are not a target for abuse, should be no problem.
