Hi, my son is 11, has ADHD, autism, Tourette,SPD, GDD and a learning disability. He's been on Ritalin for three years with very little effect at all. His psychiatrist has now put him on Intuniv. He started on 1mg and there were few side effects. His BP decreased a bit and he was sleepy for three days but this stopped. His dose was increased to 2mg two days ago and now he's complaining of a headache, nausea (he vomited this morning) and has also started wetting a lot.
Do these side effects decrease over time...or do they continue? We have noticed a minimal decrease in the tics and he's slightly calmer, also hes only been on the meds a week, so we want to give it a chance. Just wondering if anyone else has any similar experiences.
