ADHD/Asperger's medication advice

My son has ADHD/Asperger.  He is on Vyvanse, Risperdal and Trileptal.  He has just turned 12 years old.  He has been on the above medications for the last 3 years and done great until recently.  He has hit puberty full force.  His medications need to be adjusted somewhat.  Do any of you have your children on the above medicines and if so what is the dosage?  Would Risperdal work better if taking 2 dosages a day instead of 1.  Trileptal he was just taking at night.  It does not seem to last long during the day.  Maybe he needs a AM dose and a PM.   Any advice would be appreciated...
