At the end of last school year, my 8 year old started Guanfacine ER, which is the generic form of Intuniv. His doctor prescribed it, since his diagnosis was ADHD and possible ODD and other stimulant prescriptions can cause agitation, and he didn’t want that to get any worse. We moved up to 3 mg a month ago, and he is a different kid. He is so happy and cooperative! He was always a sweet kid, but the instances where he was stuck in defiance mode were starting to get more frequent and longer. So, we are happy with this med and dose. Good luck!
