First thing I would ask is how was your son diagnosed with ADHD. Did they do a lot of testing, blood tests and allergy test and hearing tests. Since you've already mentioned that your son has high cholesterol and asthma it's very possible that he doesn't even really have ADHD but has symptoms from those or other illnesses that were just diagnosed as ADHD. This could also be why you are not having success treating him with medications. Many kids are misdiagnosed every year because doctors are not thorough in ruling out all the other problems that cause add like symptoms.

Of course you may just not have found the right medication, dosage or combination of medications that will help him. Also remember the meds can only do so much they will help with focus but the ADDers need to learn to use this new focus to get things done. No medication will change behavoir overnight it just makes it possible to get results but you will still need to work to reach that goal.

Is your son in counseling or getting help at school to teach him skills such as organization. This can be a big help. It sounds easy but remember most ADD kids couldn't do these things before so they need to be taught how to do them once they start on meds.

Good luck to you
