Just Diagnosed With ADHD (Children)
Taking Intuniv for 1 month
Hi, my son was diagnosed with ADHD about 5 weeks ago. The main issue we have is impulsiveness and aggression. We tried Adderall 5 mg for only 2 days but stopped because of crying and mood swings. We are now on Intuniv 1 mg, which helped a lot the first week or two. When he increased to 2 mg, it caused severe drowsiness so we decreased back to 1 mg. Now it seems to have no effect. I’m sure I’ve been impatient with the side effects, and perhaps we should have stayed on the 2 mg. Anyone have any similar experiences?
