      I am a health M who recently started taking Intuniv (generic guanfacine ER) with ritalin.

      I know the Intuniv is helping tremendously with emotional regulation and complementing stimulants nicely.

      DOES ANYONE KNOW IF INTUNIV CAN BE TAKEN AM and PM, 12 hrs apart? say 1mg and 1mg or 2mg and 2mg. I know it is once-day and supposed to last.

      When I take it in the morning, I can feel it working. But then I can’t sleep at all at night.

      When I take it in the night, I don’t feel like it helps me in the day.

      You not alone.

      I can’t help you with your question unfortunatly.

      I can just say that I’m in your position. Intuniv helps so much with my emotional regulation, makes be able to function, if taken in the morning. But then I have trouble sleeping if not also taken in the evening. Feels to me that Inutniv is working about 10-14h, far from 24h.

      I need help with this question aswell.

      Ask your prescribing doctor if you can break up the dose.
