Himself is getting a bit jealous of the attention she is getting, methinks. He knows she has issues......he just doesn't understand why she can get away with stuff HE can't

See if you can get the concept of "fair doesn't mean equal/same" across to him somehow; you as the parent try to provide what each of them really needs and that's not always the same rewards, consequences, etc. Being the sibling of someone with a mental illness is tough - just ask my eldest son - but this is an important concept any family, but especially when you're dealing with these issues.

It's funny - we had just the opposite reactions to Adderall and Concerta; Adderall made DS#2 more agitated and irritable and the Concerta has been way better for him. Glad there's more than one flavor of meds.
