Medication interactions: Some students may have difficulty sitting still as a result of medication interactions.
Relevant observations: The behavior may have begun when additional medications were added to the student’s regimen. The behavior may occur when prescriptions are taken at the same time or when it is nearing the time that the next dose of medication is due.
