Sometimes they will prescribe in an emergency or if a teen is under say camhs and waiting but they generally are not supposed too. They shouldn't without a parent knowing either.
If they prescribe and something happens they could be in trouble .

Its very tough on your son OP but good he has confided in you. Are you sure her parents aren't interested..do you know much about her family other than what your son says. I remember a girl who did similar but it actually wasn't fully true and the school she was in knew this as it happened more than once. But they had services involved for the teen...so I know schools are on holidays but maybe you could still try them as I know often principals don't take a full summer off..only a few weeks.

Well I would like to see the guidelines. Is it a regulation? Or just advisory?
DD was prescribed them at 16. It was neither an emergency or under camhs.
Sorry, dont mean to derail Im genuinely interested.

Not sure 3dollys this is what I was told.
Maybe it depends which ones.

My gp has prescribed valium though but for muscle spasms
