My son was diagnosed in kindergarten w/ ADHD. He is extremely hyper and impulsive. He has been gradually increasing the dosage from 5mg up to 20mg now. He is 9 and in 4th grade. He had been taking Clonidine for the past 2 years for sleep issues. He is starting to have trouble sitting still and staying focused. Today his doctor added Intuniv to be taken in the am with his Adderall XR. He said to stop the Clonidine at night. We are supposed to start w/ 1mg of Intuniv for 2 weeks. After that we can try 2 if he is not doing better. Anyone else doing this combo? How is it working?
