I guess the way we can look at it is this, if someone had diabetes
, would we suggest they just tough it out and not take insulin? There are times were medications do help and provide things that without medication can't. Having Down syndrome, ADHD, Autism, etc is not a weakness, it is medical, AND in many cases can sometimes require a medical intervention. This isn't always the answer, but a doctor can better and hopefully in a well meaning way, explain what is the best route.
