It can be difficult to distinguish between just plain naughty and ADD behaviours. The simplest way is to determine if the behaviours are present everyday (including weekends), or on certain days such as non-extra mural days or at particular types of homework etc. If you can determine a pattern to his behaviours, it may due to boredom or avoidance of a subject. If it is almost a daily occurence, it is likely to be due to ADD.
In conjunction with your doctor, it may be worth trying an afternoon dosage for a time to see if the unfavourable behaviours decrease. If you do not want to increase your son's dosage, perhaps splitting his dose of 5mg in the morning and 5mg when he gets home would be beneficial; again this needs to be discussed with your prescribing professional beforehand.
