For nearly 10 years my son has been on some kind of stimulant. Recently he began having trouble with elevated blood pressure and heart rate. In particular his heart rate. After going a few days without medications (Focalin) his level went down to normal so starting tomorrow he is on his own until we figure out an alternative. He does take Intuniv but I personally have not noticed a decrease in hyperactivity or increased concentration. Anyone have experience with other non stimulants? I've read a little on strattera but I'm not sure what his dr will say. Also he takes Depokate for mood and strattera lists mood swings as a side effect so that is a little concerning.
