So today my mother-in-law was playing with our 4 and 2 year old in their play area in the basement and found a pill on the floor. Turns out it was one of my husbands 70mg Vyvance. Needless to say she probably saved one of their lives because I have no doubt at all that had one of the children found it they would have eaten it. It's very pretty after all. Apparently my husband keeps his bag with his child proof bottles of medication hanging on a hook at the top of the basement stairs. At some point he must have dropped one and didn't notice. I thought he was taking them at work.
Now that I've stopped hyperventilating.....
I need to know what type of safety protocols do those of you who take these medications use because clearly our house needs one and I need to know what's going to work... I need an ADD proof solution because I can't deal with the idea of one of the kids getting one of these pills. It's like have a loaded gun in the house just sitting somewhere.
There is a previous thread about this

I had posted a topic "Safely handling ADD meds" a couple of years ago. I think it was in the diagnosis and treatment section. I had similar issues but concerning our dog and cats. (We have no children at home. My "baby" is 30 and ADD meds would probably do her some good.) You can read that topic and see if any of the suggestions would be of use in dealing with your situation.
