My son who is almost 5, was put on Tenex (Guanfacin) just about 2 weeks ago. It definitly helped his SEVERE hyperactivity, impulsiveness for the last 12ish days, he did have some increased fatigue and would nap some days 2hrs tops (something he hasn't done since he was about 18 months old).
Anyway, the past 3 days, it almost feels like the medication has lost it's effect and he is slowly going back to his normal levels of hyperactivity and impulsiveness. Is this possible? I know this medication is suppose to be given about 2 weeks before really seeing effects, but I'm afraid its just not going to work because he is building a tolerance up so quickly. Is this possible so soon? The medication was a miracle the first few days. He was a different kid. But, like I said, its not as effective as it was. Anyone have ANY feedback please before I contact his doctor again.
