How long does it take to get back to normal after weaning off Intuniv?

My 9 yr old has been taking this drug for his tics which were a distraction in school. He still has tics but now is just plain bad and almost intolerable. We are weaning him off but his behavior has not yet improved. Will he ever go back to normal? Has this permanently damaged his good nature and loving personality? This drug should be banned, it never improved his life only made it harder and sadder.

First, hopefully you are doing this with the help of your physician, because self managing ANY medication can be dangerous.
Second, this really is a question for a physician. I imagine the answer is as with many other meds: The time frame is different for each individual.
