My 17 year old son was prescribed Adderall when he was 13 last year his doctor prescribed him Vyvanse 50mg because adderall wasn't working for him anymore. He wants to take a “drug holiday" not take it on weekends and holidays from now on. He drives that's what makes me nervous. He said only some weekends but I don't know if I like the idea. Suggestions?

He should understand that unless his doc says its okay to stop this medication on weekends or at certain times, he needs to be taking it.
