My son has ADHD he is 25. When he is on aderall he is wonderful and has great focus. Lately he has not been taking his meds because he says he can't sleep. He is filled witty rage and I seem to be his mental punching bag. We are about to go on a vacation. All of us and I do not want him to come if he is not on his medication. Do I say this to him.? Should he be taking something to sleep. I think that might be a roller coaster. Help please,
