I have a 10 year boy who has problems paying attention and suffers from social aneixty. Like many others we tried several different treatments but have found intuniv the best. The only problem was he was falling asleep in class and went to bed at 5 in the evening. We started giving him the 2mg at night before bed and that seemed to work for a while but now he is starting to get sleepy again. I ... Show Full Comment
