My son couldn’t tolerate Intuniv (nightmares) or Kapvay (don’t remember specifically what the side effect was, but it was intolerable).

After reading @deb91’s reply here yesterday, I read a little more about OCD, as it seems like a possibility for my son (very a-typical OCD). Sadly, SSRI’s are the treatment (as far as medication), and he cannot tolerate any of them (he is extremely sensitive to medications and supplements). 🙁
