My son has ADHD and we have been trying for 2 years to find the right medication for him. Just when we think we've found the right dosage/medication it stops working for him. His Dr. said it is due to his high metabolism and he metabolises the medication faster then the average kid. We are only having problems at school and no where else (home, sports, daycare) just when he needs to focus for long periods of time is when he is having difficulties. We are going to be switching him from Adderall XR to Intuniv. Does anyone have any info on this medication? I have never heard of it before..
