Your son needs to see a psychiatrist. There is more to the problems you are describing than AD/HD. typically, kids who have ADHD don't have this degree of suicidal thoughts or agression. You need professional help. As great as this forum is, it is no substitute for professional medical attention. Get in to see another doctor. With every medical school, someone had to graduate at the bottom of their class. :)

Please have him seen by a therapist, pysch ... asap. He sounds like he may have a few problems , such as odd, bi-polar and possibly depression. Don't wait!! I can be reached at [email protected], I keep you in my prayers

Brain disorder...I feel what you are going through. there is help here is my story read on:This is a very sensitive subject for me. I am the parent of a daughter 15 years old. She started cutting, talked about and tried suicide and had major depression. On the outside she seemed happy to those around her. She was able to disguise it well. I, through a long process, found help and I want everyone to know.
Jan. 3,4,5/07 we were in California at the Amen clinic http://www.brainplace.com/ or http://amenclinics.com/ Before we left we put her on mood stabilizer Lamictal. It started to do wonders. Glad we did not go on Prosac, the psychiatrists here in CO were guessing, no thanks.
They were actually able to see into her brain at amen Clinic and figure out what was wrong with a new type of procedure called SPECT. They diagnosed her with Mood disorder, PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder), and ADHD. The doctor we saw explained everything. They are very thorough. She is already improving on the Lamictal and they gave her a prescription for some wafers that are fast acting to put under her tongue for anxiety if she needs something right away.
The reason for the CUTTING!!! The Doctor there explained that when a person cuts, it causes the body to release chemicals in the brain that actually cool down the hot spots on the brain that are responsible for racing thoughts, anxiety, etc. It has a physiological reason. They are not crazy! It is a way to self medicate! Get help now.
So get help now. There is good help available. Dr. Clements is the doctor we saw there. He is excellent with teens and it doesn’t hurt as my daughter put it that “he is hot” (good looking for any parent reading this that is not familiar with that term .LOL Tell him I recommended him.
Also, talk to your counselor or principal at school and get her (easier after diagnosis) a 504 plan. It will take so much stress off.
Let me know if I can help further. Prayer works, that is what led me to the path that has been the answer.

I agree with the first response. He sounds like he has issues that you can't solve, have him see a doctor. He won't outgrow this.
Way too agressive and his actions are going to destroy your family.
