thank you, I actually started off with watching the diet when he first was diagnosed 2 years ago but unfortunately it didn't help either :(

I would start to watch his diet....a lot of foods can aggravate ADHD. You can google information online as to what kind of diet to put him on. Dye's in particular are very bad for kids with ADHD. So definitely start there!
