Intuniv discounts programs by SHire

Well it hard to take when you hear that another discount program offered runs for 12 months. Would have saved $1200 more for yr. After 5th call i have found out that the company does not educate the public to what the can get from these programs. 1) They run multiple programs and will not move you to another once you are signed up. So if your rep/dr gave you th 6month card the company will not move you to 12months prorated. What I want to know is who is getting the 12 month cards? What criteria did they hand these out vs 6 months? is economics? Search the web ask our dr but do not sign up unitl you have all programs to assess. We are now out $1200 for yr. thanks shire ## I...

Intuniv and ADD

PLEASE, PLEASE, someone help! I have a 10 yr old daughter who has been diagnosed with ADD and they want to put her on this medication. I am SO TORN and concerned about drugging my child at such a young age, but also don't want her to suffer thru her childhood! She is NOT ADHD, but ADD. ANY experiences please let me know. THANKS! ## I understand your concerns, I would not have liked the idea of putting my son on a long-term medication at such a young age, either. However, one thing you do have to remember is that Intuniv is a different class of medication, it is not a stimulant that used Amphetamines like Adderall or some of the others. It is a norephinephrine agonist, so it works much differently. You can read more on it here: Does anyone else have experience using this medication? ...

question about intuniv

hi i was wondering if anyone here has experianced chronic diahrra using this med?i was doing ok with no problem then i went to a restaurant for dinner and got sick..ive been on intuniv for with no prob but im trying to eliminate the cause of my diearrha the intuniv or the food i ate.thanks ## It is difficult to say, Intuniv can cause diarrhea as a side effect in some people and in some people it causes constipation. If you have been on it for more than a 6 weeks and did not experience diarrhea before, then I would be more inclined to blame the food. Most medication side effects hit their peak around the 4 to 6 week mark of usage, this is usually also when they reach their full effectiveness. Has it gone away or are you still sick?
