Just 2 suggestions:

Find a doctor for a diagnosis that specializes in ADHD and keeps up with it. I just had a doctor tell me the goal is to get everyone off meds by their 30’s. That was valid medical advice 20 years ago. To be blunt, teachers and general practitioner docs don’t know squat. Since you’re here asking then you know something is off.

Try exercise for/with your son.

Oh, and one more freebie, give your son a big hug and tell him you love him no matter what. If he does have problems this will be important medicine in the long run.

Best of luck
