First suggestion is find another doctor, a 6 year old should not be on Prozac what so ever, this is from three doctors and my children’s pediatrician office. Secondly from experience get rid of the Clonodine. It stays in the system for 24 hours and can cause some tiredness issues during the day. Finally Prozac for ADHD and ODD? That just screams over kill.

Research any drug the doctor wants to use, including both the major and minor side effects. Concerta works wonders for some, but some like my son become seriously aggressive.
