ADD Adult Med Confused Says:

I am 32 years old I was taking short acting adderall, my new job does drug panels and I did not disclose I have ADD. My Dr. said Straterra does come back positive for amphetamines so that is out. He recommends Intuniv but I have read it does not work, makes people sleepy and depressed. Please post your experience with this drug. Will it allow me to focus? Will I be sleepy and depressed? My job requires great attention to detail in high stress conditions.

Intuniv works quite well for some people. It's just the the stuff you read online is almost always going to be from those that have had a problem with a medication, the others that take it whom it works well for don't have a need to go online and find a site to look up information.

It contains the active ingredient Guanfacine and it may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation and dry mouth.

Some people do experience depression, as well, but the only way to find out how it affects you is by actually trying it.

Are there any other questions or concerns?
