Im starting my 9 year old son on Intuniv 1mg tonight and Focalin XR 15mg in the morning. Im a bit hesitant but I feel like I'm at the end of the rope and I dont have any other option. If it were up to his dad he would not be starting at all. He is completely against medicating, because he is afraid of the long term side effects. My son has a really hard time concentrating at school and it takes us 4 hours every day to do homework. Im worried for him he has no friends because of his lack of social skills and his aggresiveness. I really hope this helps him. Does anybody else have similar issues?
