Intuniv: Answers to Your ADHD Medication Questions
Intuniv is a once-a-day nonstimulant medication, similar to guanfacine, used to treat children, ages 6 to 17, with ADHD. Here's what you need to know.
How has Intuniv worked for your patients?
I started out as a skeptic about Intuniv — a time-release version of the alpha-2 agonist guanfacine — but my ADHD patients’ favorable responses have made me an advocate for it. I prescribe it for all age groups, not just the six- to 17-year-old group for which the FDA approved it. I almost always use it as an adjunct to a stimulant.
