i've read of cases where provigil was added to standard stimulants (ritalin, the amphetamines) for narcolepsy...I imagine you could do the same for adhd. For super-adhd you could try 2 different stims,like ritalin+dexedrine. Sometimes kids end up on odd buspar+a stimulant, an atypical neuroleptic+ a stimulant, that kind of thing. I imagine with kids there's more emphasis on behavior control with those combos, but maybe they'd help you, too.
Have you considered switching from Ritalin LA to straight-up ritalin? It'd be cheaper and, in my experience, easier to dose out; the LA caps can be kind of unpredictable, so doing generic ritalin 2-3+/- times a day might be smoother. Sometimes adding a low, even sub-therapeutic, dose of an antidepressant can be helpful. And there are always the tricyclics but...they suck.
Have you tried Desoxyn? Its hardcore, its expensive, and the dose titration can take a while, but a lot of people seem to like it. Apparently you can get more bang for your buck--more anti-ADHD effects w/ lower dosages, which can result in fewer side effects (or more tolerable ones) than adderall or dexedrine.
