First I've heard of pain as a result of Adderall, I really have no explanation for it.

As for your options, I'm going to guess that any of the amphetamines will have the same effect, so I'm ruling those out. You [i]could[/i] try methylphenidate, which is marketed under the brand names Ritalin, Concerta and Focalin. Though methylphenidate is a very close relative to the amphetamines, it does have some slight differences and may affect your son differently.

Your other option is to try one of the non-stimulant meds, Wellbutrin or Strattera, both reuptake inhibitors. These both have shown efficacy with treating ADHD in some people, though they will take a good deal longer, up to 8 weeks to reach full effect.
