Our 6 year old has been diagnosed with mood disorder, adhd, and odd. We started her on guanfacine at 1 mi to be given half in am half in pm. First few days extreme exhaustion and crankiness. Were told to lower to just 0.5 just at night for a few days, did not seem to do anything. This morning i put her back on am dose to see how it goes at school. She was prescribed intuniv, but my insurance will not cover it. How is the intuniv different thsn guanfacine. Is it just one has to be given twice adat vs. Once.
