My son's behavior has changed, he no longer has any energy, he has anger control issues, depression and has had self injury thoughts. My son is 7 years old. I do not recommend this medication. My normally happy, energetic child has become a very unhappy, angry, child. I am hoping the effects of this drug are not permanent, as I am in the process of getting him off this med.

My 8yr old has been on stimulants for his ADHD since he was 4 - they were awful for him - weight loss, slow growth, little sleep, anti-social. Our doctor moved him to Intuniv and while not perfect, I feel his is a more normal 8yr old. He eats, sleeps and plays with others - his outbursts are few and far between and he has grown an inch and a half this last month! So far love intuniv!!!!!

We tried a short acting version of Intuniv for sleep and it didn't work at all-so I wanted to let others know that Clonidine may be worth a try for getting sleep! Per his doctor's sugges ...

Comment:
I was completely against medication but decided to try Intuniv for my son who was doing very very poorly socially and academically in kindergarten. He was so hyperactive and careless that he had no friends and was already labeled the "bad boy." My son is 5 years old and we started 1mg of Intuniv five days ago. He takes one pill every morning. So far, his side effects include sleepiness a ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
IF YOU HAVE LOW BLOOD PRESSURE, DO NOT TAKE INTUNIV! My psychiatrist gave me the starter kit, and I took 1 mg. I also have a fairly low blood pressure, so the medication made it drop even lower. The first night I took Intuniv, I was so tired, I couldn't remember what happened, but when I woke up, I was so groggy, I was literally paralyzed for ten minutes. The next night, I took intuniv again, ... Show Full Comment
