In brief: Variable

The "best" adhd medication is a person-by-person answer. The individual needs a thorough diagnostic evaluation by an experienced psychiatrist or possibly a behavioral neurologist.
There are multiple choices of medication, usually stimulants -- but if multiple diagnoses are present, the "best" medication could change. Lso important is the person's progress, so "best" could change with that too.
