When do you say enough with the medication?

As of a month ago my son was taking 30mg of Adderall (to be divided up 3 times a day), Clonidine .03mg and Trazadone 75mg at night. My son was not sleeping well and was having problems like, rarely eating during the day until he took the night medication, aggression was not stopping, He seemed like he was more sensitive while on the medication (everything was a BIG deal). However his learning and his violent behavior was under control for the most part. I took him off because of his age and the side affect not only for short term use but mainly for long term use. Now I have his school asking me to put him back on all his medication and he is only 5 years old. What do I do?

I never been in your situation but if I was you I would talk it over with different doctors. or give him medicine before he go to school and not when at home. I honestly think tho if the doctor gave him medicine its for a reason.
