See doctor: If you suspect you have adhd, you should consult your doctor or clinic. This is a neurobiologic disorder that cannot be diagnosed by a layperson or google. The decision on how to treat is based on a thorough evaluation by a well trained doctor for each individual patient. The cost depends on the individual doctor or clinic. Insurance frequently covers this condition poorly, anyway.

What happens if a child gets an adult flu shot?

7 doctor answers18 doctors weighed in
Dr. Annie Emmick
Pediatrics 27 years experience
No worries: The only difference between the flu shots is the dose: children under three get half the adult dose. That means a child will get an adult dose the day after his 3rd birthday, whereas the day before that birthday he would have received the smaller dose--half. Most importantly, the child is immunized against flu, which can be a terrible illness!
