If your child takes Intuniv, what time of day do you give the medication?
My son was on clonidine for a few months and the medication worked well for him except for the drowsiness. It became so bad he was falling asleep in school. We tried changing the dose and when it was given but we just couldn't find a balance.
Two weeks ago, we started Focalin XR. What a nightmare. He became more aggressive, unmanageable, and could not sleep. And this was on the lowest dose of the medicaiton.
Today I spoke with his neurologist and we have decided to try nonstimulant Intuniv. I know this medication can make you drowsy so I am curious as to what time of day it works best. I know it needs to build up in the body so if you started it in the morning, did it cause sleepiness during the school day? Any info would be greatly appreciated.
I'm tired of the medication-go-round. I hope this medication works.
