The doctor perscrided this medication to my 7 year old and during week 2 I stopped the medicine because it was making him very hyper and he talked like there was no tomorrow. His teacher asked me what was going on with him because all he wanted to do was bounce around the classroom and talk.

My son who has ADHD has been on Intuniv for almost 3 weeks and now at 2mg. It is the first medication we tried because he was getting facial tics. It made him very tired and irritable the first 2 weeks, but we are seeing less fatigue, no tics and his teachers report better attention in class. His behavior at home has also been easier to manage. Fingers crossed this will continue.
