Shouldn't it be on a "need to know" basis ? The cashier at the supermarket doesn't need to know. Maybe a teacher would usefully know, if there's any need ( based on the stability or otherwise of his condition ) as an occasion might arise when it'd be useful for him/her to know and be better able to help the boy. The brother will want to know somthing, especially as he might get asked --- say they're special tablets to prevent a problem, whioch he needs. And tell the boss's secretary, who I would NOT have told, that this has nothing whatsoever to do with childm abuse, but arrives for purely chemical reasons in a small proportion of children. if he needs at times to spend a while at the office, just say he's there because he had the day off to see the doctor about something --- nobody needs to know the details ( do they tell you exactly what's wrong every time THEY go to see a doctor ? )
You're absolutely right in how you are reassuring him.
