I watched while other meds caused stomach pains, chest pains, and watched him wither down to 65 pounds. This medicine has caused no stomach pains, he can eat and doe ... Show Full Comment

My son is 10 years old and suffers from ADD and bipolar. We have tried so many med's and he lost 10lbs in 6 months. We have been on intutive for 4 6 weeks and he has gained 12lbs. He is happier.

We need to ... Show Full Comment

The biggest concern is that he is covered in a rash, which the Dr. suspects is a reaction to the medication. (The rash is not bothersome, just ugly.) Results of taking the medication thus far are: less aggression for sure, slightly calmer, slight improvement in attentiveness/focus, and almost no mo ... Show Full Comment
