Considering treating your child's attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) with Intuniv? William Dodson, M.D., answers frequently asked questions about this ADHD medication.
Which ADHD symptoms does Intuniv help treat?
I use stimulants for performance enhancement in school and work settings. But stimulants don’t touch some symptoms of ADHD that impair patients’ lives: emotional sensitivity, an inner sense of hyperarousal that makes people uncomfortable in their own skin, social aggressiveness, especially in kids. Intuniv does a good job with these symptoms, largely without side effects.
