Mixed medication

Hi, a friend of mine''s 13 year old son was in a phyciatric hospital for depression, anger management and ADD.

He has now come home but they have got him on the following medication and i am concerned as this is alot for child of his age and size.

Epilim CR200
Phenerine 50mg
Haloperidol 1,5mg
Fluoxetine 20mg
Lithium 200mg

It scares me that they have him on so much medication!

Please advise.

Regards
Odette
