    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.

I gave him a 1mg tablet over the weekend to see how he would react to it and he became very silly, almost drunk acting and refused to do anything I asked him to do. Ok, I know that was just one pill but ... Show Full Comment
