If you ever need accommodation, you're going to need to disclose thus.Hello!
I am wondering what the best course of action is for my situation. My future medical school has a required drug test during orientation for all matriculating students. The drug test is done through the university health clinic at orientation and not through an outside drug testing company.
I am prescribed dexmethylphenidate 20mg XR once per day and 10mg instant release 1-2 per day for ADHD. I have been prescribed this for about 3 years now.
My question is, do you think I should try and not take these medications before the drug test so it won't show up on the drug test and so I won't have to disclose my diagnosis to the school?
I have read it is best to not disclose an ADHD diagnosis to your medical school. What do you think?
Thank you for your thoughts and perspectives on this!
This info wouldn't leave student services either, it's protected medical info
