In brief: No

Generally not a good idea.
The energy drinks tend to have a great deal of caffeine which is not helpful for adhd.

Caffeine can cause too much of a crash effect several hours later.

In brief: I don't recommend it

Energy drinks often have a variety of materials including high levels of caffeine & some have alcohol.
As a supplement they are not required to place all contents on labels & often hide them as "proprietary information".I do not approve of or encourage any "energy booster" for kids, much less those with adhd whose system is already dealing with a lot. If it were good, it wouldn't need advertising.
