Perhaps Methlyphenidate is a better option (as is often the case for children). Amphetamines, in my experience, are a lot more sensitive to diet than Methylphenidate and cause more dehydration, and perhaps his food/fluid habits conflict. That is, maybe he’s not getting enough water and the dehydration is effecting his mood, or eating acidic foods, etc.

Talk to the doctor about that.
