Something else to consider, if you haven't already: look at his diet. I cut out all the processed foods, and things with lots of preservatives: chips, deli/lunch meats, storebought cookies/cakes/brownies, a lot of juices, boxed dinners/potatoes. I make a lot of homemade from scratch stuff now, substitute cereal for chips in lunches, give them pbj, tuna, chicken salad, egg salad. Only 100% fruit juices. It wasn't enough to conquer their ADHD by itself, but when they are on their meds, you can tell the difference if they have chips or bologna or storebought cookies. I do occasionally let them have some chips or something, but only at home, where I am the one dealing with the issues that come of it.
