It would be useful to discuss the boy;s medication with the prescribing doc, as there may be alternative treatments which may be either less expensive or less likely to cause the hyperactivity, or even both.

The complex situation you describe obviously can't be easy , but it should be possible to manage, especially as there's your partner and the granny available to help during the day.
