My son's Dr. prescribed intuniv today, and I am concerned that it's going to make him too tired and moody. Has anyone out there used it?
My younger son who is NOT on the spectrum has ADHD and OCD. He is on Intuniv and it has been very helpful. My ASD son is on the short acting version which is called Guanfacine. He has to take it several times a day and if we forget a dose or administer it to him later than normal, we really pay for it. He is very agitated and can become aggressive. We are having a hard time getting our insurance to cover Intuniv even tho our other son is already on it. If you are worried about him being too tired, give it to him at night. I never have noticed that as a side effect for my boy.
