ADHD Adults

Adults taking Intuniv
Keywords:


From all that I’ve read, it seems like Intuniv would help with irritability, frustration, and anger.  My adult son and I both take Vyvanse, but would like to add Intuniv.  Our doctor says it’s for children 6-17.  Does anyone take Intuniv?

@Chellelynn,

The FDA approved Intuniv for children 6-17. That doesn’t necessarily mean an adult shouldn’t take it. You could certainly get a 2nd opinion from another doctor to know for sure.
