Dear Ina,

I am not sure how I can assist as there is no question.

As the parent you have the ultimate say on whether or not to put your daughter on any medication. If the headmistress is against it, hear her reasons for saying so and weight this information against the side effects and benefits of medication as explained by the doctor.

Kind regards,
Delia
