To be honest I don't know if it would be a good idea to use Intuniv in combination with stimulants. Intuniv is a still a new med, but you can find more info on it here:

Hope the link will help.

My doc and studies sAY intuniv alone for severe ADHD is not very helpful but is better when added to stimulants

I've seen lots of studies and anecdotal evidence that suggest Intuniv works really well when combined with stimulants.

Actually, my doctor prescribed this to me (Vyvanse + Intuniv), but once I started researching Intuniv, I realized it's not a drug for me.

It can cause problems with overheating and heat exhaustion. But, the main reason I won't take it is that you cannot drink alcohol (ever) when taking it.

I've been on Vyvanse and my doc just added Intuniv for my anxiety. I just started researching, but so far, it looks like Intuniv is recommended as a good non-stimulant adjunct to stimulants.

Doc warned me that I could feel tired so I took my first tablet at 3pm. Felt a little more sleepy than usual, but didn't go to bed any earlier.

The only problem I had was waking up ... I couldn't get up and my head felt like I had a hangover.
