Has anyones child been diagnosed with ADHD: Advice?

Has anybody’s Child been diagnosed with ADHD?If so are they been treating with medication? What are the main side effects you noticed on your Child? I’m deeply against medicating my Child. Are their any alternatives anybody is using? I’m taking my Child to be evaluated next week. He is super smart and is one of the top students in the class despite him not focusing and paying attention to the teacher he has the energy for days. We have tried EVERYTHING from taking toys, PlayStation away, TV spanking him, and nothing has worked. Looking for advice.
