I hear you and trust me you are not alone in this.
Have you tried Strattera ? It takes a few unpleasant weeks to start up but well worth it with 24 hr coverage so no coming down. It helps focus and mood.
For our son the psy added Zoloft and the combo has worked brilliantly.
The Zoloft is used off label and has evened out his mood, reduced extreme behaviour and helped him concentrate. I never thought we would get to this point.
Good luck. It does take so much time and effort finding the right meds and know you are not alone.
