UPPING DOSAGE? For those using Intuniv, my almost 9-yr old has been on 2mg of Intuniv at night since Oct. We saw great improvement for a few months but have been seeing more of the "pre-intuniv" behavior (argumentative, impulsive, outbursts). Have considered upping the dosage to 3mg but fearful of tireness effect.
ONLY INTUNIV? My son's been on 2mg of intuniv (non-stimulant) at night + stimulant (20mg Vyvanse) in day. I wonder if some of his argumentive behavior & temper are effects of Vyvanse and whether we could drop the Vyvanse but keep 2mg Intuniv (or higher). Any experience dropping stimulant? Maybe i wait until school's out before playing with the attention-specific med.
