OLGA & ADHD

It's not just OLGA for my husband--it's also ADHD and depression, which complicates matters tremendously.  He's not able to handle finances, so I HAVE to do it.  He can't remember things, so I HAVE to follow behind him and do what he leaves undone.  This is typical of ADHD.  He is currently tryng medication for ADHD.  I feel like nothing is going to change and I don't know what to do.   He freaks out if I try to discuss OLG.  How do I get him to realize that OLGA is harmful to him and me?
