I can feel for all of you. My Boss's son has both ADHD and ODD and has been through the wringer with him. Even pressed charges after he broke the front door, threw her jewlery box through a window and threatened to push her down the steps. Brother also has one child like this. Thankfully, my youngest is ADD-focus type.
Yes the above meds are correct for condition. Setting some firm boundaries--that they will bounce up against repeatedly...and learning when to let small stuff slide is much easier said than done.
