My 6-year-old son was prescribed Intuniv 1 mg a day. During the first week, it works. He was calm and was able to sit still in the restaurant.

He falls asleep around 3 pm which he never does in 4 years. He ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I am a 62 yr old male with depression, anxiety, adding up to a atypical bipolar with ADHD, all diagnosed late in life. We decided to try an ADHD. Ritalin made me more hyper than ever. Intuniv at 3mg once day seems to work with focus and staying calm. BUT is lowered my blood pressure to under 100/50 and I have gained 10 lbs in less than a month. Stopping and moving on to next whatever.

Comment:
My son has been diagnosed ADD for since age 6 and is now 8. At first we tried working 1/1 with school psychologist and made many action plans, rewarding him when he focused most of day, also eating good diet and vitamins fish oil and ADDED Attention. But throughout 3 years of school, it was obvious he needed more. My husband and I were so scared of starting him on meds, especially stimulants, s ... Show Full Comment
