Holding our breath

Wow - as I type, I imagine I'll jinx us but Ava's doc added Intuniv to her cocktail and she took the first dose last night. She went down to sleep last night (usually our WORST time of day) with very little arguing and today was a fabulous day. She's a bit tired but we had a great day at the pool today as a family. She had her 2nd dose this evening and two hours later she went to be again with very little pushback. Could it be? Could we have found THE one?

  2. It's a okay drug...do watch for increased aggression though. Spawn had that nasty side effect after increasing to 3 mg and being on it for approx 3 months. It doesn't work that way for everyone but I thought it was worth mentioning.

    Good luck honey

  3. Also watch for decreased blood pressure. It worked okay for Kenzie once she was on the 4mg. but her blood pressure took a nose dive and it did not work well enough for that risk. But I do hope it is the one for Ava! Amantadine has been the big help that Kenzie has needed.
