6 Year Old and ADD and Aggression

Hi I am a mother of three children. My middle son, 6, has got add and a huge aggression problem. He was on ADDvance for about 5 months and this made him even more aggressive to such an point where he would try to push his sister, 3 at the time, down a flight of stairs. I changed him over to Brain Child and he has been on it for about a year now. However, it now seems like he has gotten used to the Brainchild and we as parents are struggling to keep him in control. I do not want to go the Chemical route and use medication like Ritlin as I am worries about the side effects that come along with it although I know it is an excellent drug. We are concern for his safety and that of his peers and siblings. We are also struggling to get him out of his "tantrum" stage where he will either stand in a corner with arms folded if he cannot get his way or become aggressive and hurt any one close to him or himself. He has his good days where he is such a dream child and so well behaved but then other days, like today, where he would just run infront of cars or what run away from me. Please help as I am now starting to wonder if I am not doing something wrong as a mother. Thank you
