Intuniv And Gas

Hi there, so my 9 year old has ADHD and we just recently switched from Focalin 10 mg twice daily to Intuniv. The Focalin made him not eat and very depressed. Although it helped with the ADHD symptoms incredibly. My son hated how it made him feel. So now we started the 1mg of Intuniv on Thursday. I am not seeing the improvements in the ADHD symptoms yet but he is having no eating issues and the depression is gone. Now the issue is he is having the most horrendous smelling gas. He smells as bad as my dogs. I am wondering if anyone else has seen this side effect or maybe it is not the meds. Thanks for any info. This is obviously something we can deal with if the meds work but OMG it is awful.

Hello, Donna! How are you?

It might be due to the Focalin, according to the FDA listed side effects, but it's hard to say for sure, it could also be due to something he's eating or other metabolic changes. Unless it's causing him discomfort, it's likely nothing to worry about, unless his doctor sees reason for concern.

Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability and weight loss.

Is there anything else I can help with?
