 2  Aggression, emotional dysregulation My son was on this to try and manage his anger outbursts and emotionality. It has not helped. At all. It certainly does help some people but perhaps my son has other things going on besides adhd that the intuniv isn't helping M 7 3 months

 1  ADHD and BP Exhaustion, depressed thoughts, zombie like state, lack of emotion, no drive to do anything, anxious, feel helpless and sad, chest pressure, headache, paranoia, agitation, out of body experience and any other non-positive effect you can imagine. I had to give up on this medication. By far the worst thing I've put into my body. Typically I'm happy, outgoing, love interacting with people and interested in hobbies. To keep this short, just imagine the soul sucked out of your body on top of feeling weak, tired, slow to process information, confused, forgetful while experience dizziness and vertigo symptoms.

 1  Adult ADHD Weight gain, mood swings, hearing voices whispering, intense dizzy spells, lethargic and incredibly tired, insomnia. This is the worst drug I've ever been prescribed. My specialist seemed unaware of side effects and said it wa last harmless. I gained 15lbs in less than 3 months. I have been a marathon runner many years so I'm extremely fit and have had a stable weight for 10 years. 2 days after I stopped cold turkey my appetite was back to normal, my energy returned and weight started dropping. Hideous drug. F 46 90 days

 3  ADHD symptoms/aggression Appetite increase, weight gain, complains of weird noises in his head, grumpy I hate to bash any medication because I really feel that different meds work for different people and you should give it a chance. That being said, we had our 5 year old on a low dose of this med for aggressive tendencies and attention problems. Overall, we felt there were more cons than pros. We were told it is weight neutral but our son gained. He also seemed more depressed. It was not the right med for him. M 5 3 months

 4  ADD GAD Some lack of clarity and feeling listless. I really think this medication is better for adults although I know it's commonly used for children. I have narcolepsy and fibromyalgia as well as anxiety and ADD, I take intuniv with my Adderall, it helps to reduce anxiety and general discomfort. I feel I can manage my feelings much better and I'm more rational rather than emotional. It's evened me out a lot. F 22 2 years

 1  ODD Urination, bed wetting, enuresis, wetting pants, peeing on the floor. Doesn't improve behavior much. Should not give intuniv to kids. Not very effective for children. Causes them to wet their pants or wet the bed. Creates more problems than it solves. M 8 6 months

 1  ADD and ADHD My son was on it for about two months during that time he started seeing things and hearing voices also never wanted to be alone his aggression got worse bad words and angry alot. This medicine made him worse. Now he is in hospital I told them take him off now. But they told me since the med is used also for blood pressure they might have to take him off slowly. But thank goodness that was not the case. Please don't put your child on this M 18 2 months

 1  ADHD Sedation. Unable to function. Glassy eyes. Unless desiring a zombie this is useless. When not sleeping my daughter was either curled up on the floor with her head down or sitting listlessly on the couch with no reaction to anything around her. What little talking she did was done in a very slow quiet monotone. The only thing this medicine accomplished was making me check vitals non stop F 5 1 days

INTUNIV  (GUANFACINE HYDROCHLORIDE):  This medication is used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), as part of a total treatment plan including psychological, educational, and social measures. Unlike other drugs used to treat ADHD, guanfacine is not a stimulant. The exact way that guanfacine works to treat ADHD is unknown. Guanfacine is thought to affect receptors in the parts of the brain that lead to strengthening working memory, reducing distraction, and improving attention and impulse control. Guanfacine may help lessen ADHD symptoms such as being disruptive, inattentive, hyperactive, impulsive, and arguing with adults or losing one's temper.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
