I'm looking for any expertise any of you may have as mothers about Tourettes and ADD in teen boys???

My 15 year old son has Tourettes & ADD. We've tried traditional medicines for ADD that don't work because it sends his tourettes into orbit. We've recently tried homeopathic meds but I believe those are damaging his liver. I don't have confirmation on that yet though. I'm desperate to find something to help my son. He's a good boy and has always made good grades but the past couple of years has really been struggling. Now that he's hit puberty everything is worse. I only have 4 more years of him at home and need help preparing him for college. As it is now, there's no way he would even make through high school without me much less college. There are no behavorial issues. Just him moving his neck around and the inablility to concentrate and focus on anything for more than a few minutes. Can anyone help us?
