I am a divorce father of three wonderful children. Unfortunatly, my ex-wife has primary legal guardianship to all threee of them. My oldest child is eight years old and was put on a medicine for his ADHD which I am not correctly informed about (Please- lets ignore the legal obligation my Ex has to inform me). Now, my seven year old child is legally "Force" on the same medication as well. My questions are, Is this possible? Can a doctor force certain medicine on a minor? Does he have the right to involve the state if the treatment/medicine is not given as demanded by doctor?View Thread
