There are many ways to treat ADHD- meds, behavior therapy, counseling, diet changes, fish oil, etc. Not all of these things work with all children. For example, a diet change did not work for my son at all. As for the meds, while one may work for my son, it may not work for yours. If you do go with meds, don't give up on the first try. It will take time to find the right one. As for the pp mentioning caffeine, that is correct for some children. Sometimes, when my son is super wired, we may have to give him a little bit of Mountain Dew so that he can go to sleep. We don't do this often, only when he really needs it.
