Intuniv and ADHD

Jennifer - posted on 01/08/2016 ( no moms have responded yet )




My son is 8. He has ADHD. He had a horrible reaction to adderal and cannot take any brain stimulants again. We started Intuniv three weeks ago. 1 mg for two weeks but didn't really notice anything. Started 2 mg a little over a week ago. I am now noticing mood swings and irritability that are worse than ever before. At first I thought it might be due to getting of schedule and being tired or maybe he needs time to adjust. Now I am wondering if it's the Intuniv. Doctor wants to go up to 3 mg next week. Anyone else have this experience? Any recommendations?
