Medication Question

My son started Intuiv last week on Friday.  He is really tired and lethargic.  He is on 2 mg.  The doctor started him on that dose because he is a big kid.  Is the tiredness normal?  Does anyone know when I can expect the side effects to go away?  I just need to keep an eye out so that I can contact his doctor if this keeps up.


My son was tired on Intuniv for about a month and then it subsided.
