I've been hearing about a new nonstimulant medication called Intuniv. Could it be a good option for my son?

Intuniv is a new, extended-release formulation of the high-blood pressure medication guanfacine (sold for hypertension under the brand name Tenex) that can be used alone or along with stimulant medications in children ages 6 to 17. It is not a new medication.
