Another Intuniv question
My son started taking Intuniv two weeks ago. He started with 1 mg in the morning and after a week, we increased it to 2 mg. I’ve noticed this past week that his mood was much better on the one mg dose, but he was so hyperactive. On 2 mg, he’s not nearly as hyper, but his mood is all over the place (like it was when he was on tenex), he’s having tantrums again (although not nearly as many), and he is so impulsive and aggressive. His dr thinks we should increase it to 3 mg, but im worried about his mood. He is getting int tons of trouble at school though becaus of the impulsivity and aggressive behavior towards other kids. Any ideas how the 3 mg will affect him? One thing I’ve noticed is that he has not been tired at all from taking 2 mg and the dr said he would be. Does that mean that it may not be a high enough dose? I’ve been happy that he hasn’t been a zombie all week. When he started the tenex, he was always exhausted.
Thanks in advance!
