Is medication the solution?

My 13 year old son who looks like he is 19 but is really just a baby bear to me has ADHD. I found out when he was 7. Since then he has been on different meds until he started Vyvance 70mg. This pill seemed to be effective for about 2 years but now I think it is his hormones that has him unfocused. He has uncontrolled impulses. He flips out if he can not find what he is looking for. Teachers have helped organized his folders over and over. He has great hygiene because he cares about how he looks, but he constantly repeats to me that he doesn't want to let me down, but he continues to be unorganized. At times it seems he doesn't care. I know he does but it would appear to me that he slacks on very important things, but yet is quick to defend himself when I try to make sense of his forgetfulness.
