Worried about ADHD medication

My youngest daughter 15yr old is currently diagnosed with ADHD. Although not living with me - I have to settle the medical bills - during November 2018 she was booked into Denmar clinic for treatment which I think was the wrong Idea - Currently she is prescribed to the following medicine : Concerta 54mg, Epitec 100mg, Lexamil 100mg!!! And currently going for psychology treatment aswell I am really worried about the prescription she is on I do not think this is good for her, Please assist me with answers and recommendations

The most important aspect of treatment is the correct diagnosis. ADHD and bipolar disorder is often misdiagnosed, or the diagnosis missed. If she indeed has both, then her medication will be justified. If you are not comfortable with the diagnosis and treatment, consider a second opinion.

I have been on Ritalin or Concerta which is the long acting Methylphenidate Hydrochloride for 30 years and the shit scares me to hell but impossible to come off of in my condition unless I die. :-(
