How can ADHD and OCD in a teenager be treated?

I have a 15 yr old grandson, diagnosed with adhd. He takes 4-5 showers a day. Eats like he is starving, wolfs down the food so fast he surely cant taste it. Slams all doors rather than just closing them. Is this normal for a 15 yr old with his adhd?

He needs a complete evaluation and needs to start on methylphenidate along with fluoxetine.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
