We need to ... Show Full Comment

My 7 yr old VERY ADHD child has been on Intuniv for 2 1/2 weeks. We just titrated up to 3mg today. 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

My six year old son takes thiks medication for ADHD. He also has aspergers and tourettes and we had tried other medications to for his impulsiveness and hyperactivity including vyvanse. the vyvanse made his tics teriible but this medication does not. the worst thing I can see is he is very tired in the afternoon and will sometimes take a nap.

I have two boys 9 and 7 both with ADHD one of which also has bipolar and a list of other psy. dx. We have tried and tried many many different rx. This is the miracle that we were looking for. My ADHD only child is happier, less aggressive, easier to get along with, and is not bouncing off the walls in the morning. However he is still a a great child and he is not zombish. My child that suffers fro ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
My daughter is ADHD. I had her on Vyvanse and she was constantly telling me that her stomach was hurting. Now I have her on this medicine and the first week went well. When I put her up to the 2mg pill she has done nothing but sleep 20 to 22 hours out of the day. This is unacceptable! No child should be zombiefied!! I am now taking her off of this medicine and plan on putting her on something that ... Show Full Comment
