constant movement in8 year old

My son was on adderal  until three months ago. He only is taking clonidine at night to help settle down and be able to sleep.      He began almost constantly moving his fingers...like snapping,  or moving his jaw or biting like movements  alsoconstant talking.   The moving began After we stopped adderal.  Often difficult to be around him due to the frenzy! Diagnosis of ADHD  uncertain.MD thinks it may be Bipolar  so meds are difficult . He recently mentioned movement disorder. I would like to know more about this and how I can help my son.  Thank You

The description you offer can indicate ADHD, tic disorder, Tourette Disorder, and possibly other conditions. Additional evaluation is certainly in order, including neurological examination (including EEG).
