As a Practitioner who prescribes ADHD medication, Dr Redwan takes responsibility for ensuring on-going safety monitoring very seriously.  He will therefore only be able to prescribe ADHD medication if;

  • For the first 5-6 months, you make a follow up appointment with him once a month (or until settled on the right dose), 
  • After 6 months, (and if settled on the right dose), a follow up appointment is necessary six monthly.  You may need to attend more frequently if there are other more pressing needs to consider.
