James here....

Generally no on the vacations....those on anti psychotics take drug holidays to avoid some of the nasty side effects but stims and AD don't have
these sideeffects.

A general blood panel from time to time is not a bad idea...I do a liver panel as I take a number of meds that the liver metabolizes...just to make sure all is ok. Have your BP checked...stims and some AD's can raise BP.
