My 8yo son has been issued Intuniv for his ADHD. He is on 4mg. He has been getting this pill at 7pm. I know that one of the side affects is sleeplessness. He is calming down at 3 or 4 am every day. He gets up at 7 for school. I know that this is a time release drug that extends for about 12 hours or so. Not sure why they recommend this for night time. Any one else have problems giving at night and getting to bed reasonably? Anyone switched times to see if it changes during the day time when they are active?

There's actually another thread here with over 40 replies that has more information on user's personal experiences with Intuniv. You can have a look by following the link below:

It looks like the person who started that thread had a very similar question to yours, so hopefully you can find what you're looking for there.

I hope this helps point you in the right direction! :)

We have the same problem. Would love more insight on this.

Did you work up to the 4mg? Just wondering bc we are @ 1mg and the doctor said we would have to work out way up to a high dose if necessary. My son also takes Concerta.
