Try natural first and see what happens.

Lab tests can't determine if the drugs are working or not. They only determine if the drugs are damaging internal organs. The only way to determine if the drugs are working are by assessing the child's behavior. Traditional ADHD drugs don't effect hormones. They stimulate the brain to help it function better. I don't know if some of the newer drugs effect hormones. I've never heard of that, but I'm not up to date on what's come out in the last few years.
