Will ADHD Meds Help Aggression at School?

“My daughter is 10, and takes coimprimine and Adderall. She is having trouble at school — she hits and bites her teachers. What medication will control her behavior?”

You describe a complex set of problems that are not yet being addressed. Since medication is involved, I would encourage you to seek a consultation with a child and adolescent psychiatrist to figure out what is going on and how best to address the problems. Do not do nothing. Your child needs help.
