    My 11 yr. old son was just changed to this drug. We skipped 2 days & used the old concentra 54 mg. Now he is complaining of being sleepy and is still distractive in class. What can I do?

    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.

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
