How many weeks before Intuniv reaches full effectiveness in your system is it like a SSRI 6-8 weeks or less?

I don't believe it will take that long, the bigger issue is getting you up to the proper dose, if the medicine will even help at all.

My Dr. said that it takes about 5 days for it to be at its full capacity but then you up your dose at 7 days. We stuck at 1 mg bc we saw good results. We will continue to monitor and see if that continues to be enough. It seems that the longer he has been on it (tomorrow will be 2 weeks) the better it has gotten. I have read on various sites that it can take up to 2 weeks to get the full effect. But it will be evident by a week if the mg you are on needs to be bumped up or not. Hope that helps and best of luck! ps:how long has your child been on it?
