Post ADHD vs Asperger's?

My six year old has been diagnosed as having ADHD and Asperger's Syndrome. He is on Wellbutrin for the ADHD and seems to be doing fairly well. We are concerned however that he still has a real hard time modulating his voice (he's very loud) and with being hyper, particularly at his after school day care. I am wondering if these symptoms are from the ADHD or the Asperger's and is there something that maybe we should be trying behaviour wise as opposed to changing medicines? Thanks for any input.

Well, I have spoken to my son's teachers at school and with various peole that he stays with outside of school, other than his daycare lady and they tell me he is no more inclined to be loud or hyper than other "normal" children. A relief to me in terms of not having to change meds but now I am worried about her!
