MY 5 year old was talking Intuniv for a month that really didn't work so her doc put her on Tenex...1/2 tab in the morning and 1 mg at night. She is better with her rages and her ADHD and ODD but she still isn't sleeping at night. She just started this med this week so I'll wait longer to see how she does.

My son will be 5yrs old in 2 months. His Dr has prescribed Tenex and told me to give him 1/4 a tablet to start out. Daycare is really pushing the meds on me because my son has to be re-directed constantly and seems to have issues acting on impulse.

Comment:
I discontinued this medicine, although quite helpful, because I had (and still have) swelling of my throat and trouble swallowing. In addition, I itched frequently and had unmanagable constipation. Had I not had the side effects, I would have considered continuing use. Please note that I take a tremendous amount of other RX's - perhaps made a difference re: side effects. ??
