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.
