Intuniv for ADHD?

The Intuniv (ADHD brand of this drug) brand is also known as Guanfacine, which is another Shire drug. The Tenex brand of Guanfacine, is a high blood pressure medication. It is a non stimulant medication but does that make it healthy? Does that make it better or safer?

The way to tell is by looking at the side effects. I watched a commercial about the drug and it was real interesting what they had to say about it.

The first thing the commercial said was that it had "Serious Side Effects". That can't be good. It said that this drug can decrease the blood pressure. Here are the other side effects of the medication that have been disclosed.

Here is the commercial with a handheld camcorder (not done by me). We will see how long it stays online. Sorry, it was taken down and there isn't another one up to show you.

This drug affects the brain. Here are the side effects:

  • dry mouth
  • tiredness
  • weakness
  • headache
  • irritability
  • decreased sexual ability
  • decreased appetite
  • stomach pain
  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • constipation
  • fainting
  • blurred vision
  • rash
  • slow heart rate

Do these side effects sound better than ADHD? These side effects don't sound to different than Adderall and it is a stimulant. Check out the side effects on that page and compare them.
