    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 12 yr old has been on several different ADHD meds (Vyvanse, Adderall, Focalin XR..) since he was 7 yrs old. All of these meds gave him tics, not to mention the fact that he stayed underweight and small in stature all of these years. Every night he was agitated and tired. Recently his doctor put him on Intuniv. We started at 2mg and then quickly went to 3mg which was way too strong for him. ... Show Full Comment

    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.

    I was thinking about asking my son doctor if we could try him on this. He has combined adhd and is pretty agressive. He is 11 yrs old also. If anyone has anymore insight on this med please post. Also is this an expensive drug?
