My son was on Intuniv for less than a week and in addition to sleeping about 20 hours/day, he developed this terrible rash that is still all over his body after being off of the medication for 4 days.
athena on Jan, 13, 2013:
My daughter is on intuniv and has become weak and won't eat much. She is 4 her cough has been supressed along with her immune system. When I don't give her the medication her sore throat gets better but her cough returns. This medication I think does a lot more than what it intention is made for, I'm taking her off before she develop cancer.
