you also need to talk to her school teachers. The meds may be working at school, but wearing off by the time she gets home. If so, then …. probably just increasing the dose or changing to a longer acting med will help.
You also need to realize that the meds are not magic. They cannot control years of built up habits. You also have to be actively involved in changing those years of habit. This site has lots of specific ways to work with kids with adhd. take the time to check them out. If you are not actively involved, she will be getting only half of the possible benefits.
