I have been taking Intuniv for Tourette's for three weeks. Most side effects are subsiding, except for insomnia. I take Intuniv at night before bed along with 100 mg of Trazodone. Before starting the Intuniv, I slept well. Now, I go to sleep, but wake up in a couple hrs. May go back to sleep for a couple more hours, then I awaken again. Usually don't go back to sleep. I am very sleep deprived, and its hard to function during the day. Called my neurologist and he suggested increasing the Trazodone. Still didn't sleep last night. Unfortunately, MD is now out of town for a week. Has anyone had this problem and would it be better to take intuniv in the morning?
Hi, I have a 12 yr old son with ADHD and just found out he has Mixed Receptive Expressive Language Disorder... He has been on Intuniv for about five years now and he started out taking it at night since he was having problems going to sleep. He then started staying up all night and having what we called was (all-nighters) lol. So, his Dr told me to start giving it to him in the mornings. So we did and we haven't had a problem since and 5 years later he still goes right to sleep. I do however have a question for you though... You said ur Dr put you on Intuniv for Tourette's... Do you know why they put you on that for Tourette's?
