Well.... i dont think the meds really made your grades up but if you have ADD your mom should still give you meds because you can never tell what will happen.

If you doctor recommends you still take them than your mom should give them to you.
But sometimes people actually start to fail because they think without there meds they will fail and automatically thats what happens.
A lot of it is mental and tests have been done where they give someone a medication then they give them a "blank" pill and sometimes they do just as good on the blank because they think they are getting there medication.
Of course I think that if your doctor recommends it you should ask him to explain why to your mother.

I would like to make a correction... ADD (I have ADHD) makes you loose consentration. I went off of my meds because it was messing up my heart. You need to talk to your doctor ALONE or sit down and explain to your mom whats happening. Your not diffrent if you take meds for that. I need it, but I CANT take it... It will stop my heart.. Hmm, Heart or Grades..
