  • Heavy breathing caused from tenex?
    My son is on tenex and is doing this heavy breathing. Not sure if its another motor tic or if it is from the medicine. Any other experiences with this and tenex?
  • Intuniv and tardive dyskenesia
    My daughter has autism and hyperactivity. She was treated with Intuniv for about 2 years. She developed tardive dyskenesia. I am currently in the process of finding ways to treat it. I have tried Zantac, baclofen, no treatment. so far those have not helped. I am going to try vitamin B6 now in hope of alleviating the condition.
  • Vomiting & low blood pressure on 4 ml intuniv
    My son (8yrs old) has had an amazing year of improvement during 14 months on intuniv. Last week we increased from 3 to 4 ml because of weight gain and an increase in symptoms. After the third day of the increased dose he complained of a headache and began vomiting, which he continued to do for 6 hours. I later learned that these symptoms, as well as dizziness, were all caused by a decrease in his blood pressure. I sure wish I had been aware that there was a possibility of this happening, because I thought he had the flu and allowed him to suffer untreated all night long and well into the morning. We had to spend the night in the hospital under observation and now we are back to 2 ml. A dose I do not think will be effective. The symptoms that we need addressed immediately are: lack of focus and organization, being easily aggravated by other people, and hyperactivity. We have tried stimulants before and they were not a good match for my son, making his SID symptoms more intense and he was very underweight. I think we will be seeing a neurologist soon. What are our options?
