Im quitted strattera after a few months because it gaves me a lot of side effects (urinating etc)
Stimulants ar not an option, doc says only Guanfacine may be an option. I have a lot of anxiety/attention issues and add + pdd nos.
Reading about Intuniv gives me hope cuz strattera was the first medication that worked for me

I think my troubles are similar to yours. Strattera was the first medication I had succes with, as well. I do believe there's a great chance your anxiety will be reduced significantly, if you try Intuniv. Unfortunately there's a risk you'll get severely sedated or feel a great deal of lethargy when taking it, which gets a lot of people to quit taking it after some time, even thougt it has helped them significantly with their anxiety issues. I'd say that if you doctor recommends it and you're in need of a drug that does helps with anxiety issues, and even has some effect on cognitive ADHD-issues, it does seem like a great idea to try give Intuniv a chance.
