We recently started our 10 y/o son Intunive. Started out on 1mg for 1 week and it seemed ok he could definitly notice that he was drowsy.

My 8 year old step son was on Intuniv for a few months after being switched from Focalin for lack of weight gain. The Intuniv started out fine.

We bumped him up to 2 mg and it was too much, made him really sleep ... Show Full Comment
