I have a 6.5 year old daughter who we recently found out that she has ADHD, tried natural meds, and things just kept getting worse at school..we are now trying Intuniv..But she is sooo tired and extremely emotional over the slightest thing. She has been on it for more than 3 wks now but i dont know if its to soon to decide anything. Is there any advice from other moms!? please help

I have been through a lot of things with ADHD it can be an long journey to the end of the rain bow but it does get better. I am a daycare provider and i have many children and neices and nephews that are ADHD they all take medication and it will take longer then 6 weeks for the body to get use to it so keep trying it and if that dont work put her on a routine for every day children of ADHD dont like change a lot and if that dont work try AEAY and they may can help you more.

Kristina since medication works differently on people, I'd suggest that you contact her healthcare provider. Take care..
