Whatever this medication is, you need to contact the doctor right away. This would not be a safe normal side effect for anything. It is in some meds a bad side effect. The doctor will determine what to do.
Sound like what I experienced with a sleep disorder: night terrors. Most often children have these but with certain sleep disorders adults can too. Yes, most definitely a call to your doctor is in order. These can be terrifying and could be just a reaction that is because of just starting on this med. but that's a call for your doctor to make. Not something you want to guess about! ElizaJane
I so agree with everyone else, phone the doctor who gave your son this medication. The terrors are so real to the person experiencing them, this has happened to me before and I will never forget how bad it could be. Hope you get a quick solution from the Dr and your son gets to sleep normally again, let us know how he gets on, Liz.
Hello mistymaysen. I researched your question and in clinical trials/studies just under 2% of users experienced nightmares. Best of wishes to you and your son, pledge
My 7 year old daughter was prescribed several drugs for ADHD, Vyvanse and most recently Intuniv. After nearly a month of night terrors and animated dreaming we pulled her off Intuniv and have immediately seen improved, restful sleeping. I can’t tell you how devastating it was to see her in an inconsolable dreamlike haze lasting from 45 minutes to several hours. Her terrors consisted of things crawling on walls and macabre events, something I truly found odd as we heavily monitor her television/news/etc.l intake. Thankfully we’re all getting some rest now and can tackle the day with clarity. Intuniv may work for other but it was a nightmare of a drug for us.
