I use tenex, a hypertension drug, as my son is ADHD also. It helps a little, but when we try to increase the dosage he has severe constipation. We have also tried strattera with no success. The best thing I have ever done for my son was put him on the gluten and casein free diet. Check out autismNDI.com.
