    when you're poor is FINDING the right med. Every doctor seems to have their 'pet med' and Goddess help you if it doesn't work for your child, because they are loathe to prescribe anything else. And then there's the fact that many states are privatizing medicaid, and limiting what meds are even covered. Part of the reason we tried Draco without meds (which luckily worked because he also didn't have the stress of public school) was the fact that medicaid refused to pay for the only ones that worked any more, despite multiple requests from the doctor for a waiver.
