I agree with Beth...ask the Dr. about taking it at night. My 7 year old is also been on Intuniv since Jan. He is on 2 mg, but we are going to be moving him to 3 mg soon. He has done really well on 2 mg, but we still see a little room for improvement on impulsiveness. Our Dr. said most kids end up on 3 or 4 mg. Our son was still seeing some slight sleepiness in the late afternoon and evening, but alot had subsided since first taking the medicine in January. Our Dr. recently told us to try switching it to night time, We have set him to take it at 8 pm (he is usually in bed around 8:30 or so most nights). That way the sleepiness will occur sometime in the night. So far I think it has been working better.
