Executive Functioning Limitations

My husband has been diagnosed with ADHD and is taking Adderal and Wellbutrin.  Although they do make some difference, he still has extreme difficulties with executive functioning (processing, organizing, remembering conversations, etc.) that seem extreme.  He has said that he has been "knocked out cold" on three different occasions during his lifetime.  He talks of this as if it's normal for this to happen to people.  But, he doesn't have any "serious" neurological effects - that is to say, he "appears" to function very normally until you work with him (which I do) or are married to him, and see how much he is really missing.  Is it possible that he had some sort of head injury that is resulting in some of the ADHD symptoms?  Should he be evaluated by someone other than a psychiatrist?  Thanks for any help!
