ADD/ADHD Information

Methylphenidate in the Armed Services

Anyone wishing to join the Armed Services will be required to be off Methylphenidate for 2 years - The main reason this is not accepted is the same as for any long term medication, if on operations where medication can not be available when a new prescription is required this can cause a problem for both the Armed Service and the person concerned. The reason they require the person to be off medication for 2 years is to ensure that the person can cope without the medication for a sustained period. This does not mean that any child wishing to join the Armed Services is automatically prevented because they have ADD/ADHD it is purely a practicality and therefore if the young person has managed without medication for 2 years they will be treated the same as anyone else wishing to join up.
