My son is aproaching 1 week on this drug- he is definitely sleepy- but his MD said that goes away after a week. Is he going to be more tired when he starts 2x a day? how long before the tiredness wears off?

Hello ARGinsburg. Your sons doctor is correct. I don't believe he'll be as tired when the dose is doubled, although he might be fatiqued but not to the point he has been since the Kapvay has already been introduced into his body, and he'll hopefully be feeling more like his old self. Best of wishes along with good health to you both,pledge
