He's been on Tenex 0.5mg in morning and night and it really seems to be helping. Before this med we were getting reports of hitting at school daily, and since he started this med, he hasn't hit anyone! Also we haven ... Show Full Comment

My 6 yr old son has been on this medication for just over a year. He takes this twice a day in conjunction with Strattera. We have seen a huge difference in his attitude, behavior and outbursts. Def worth trying esp if stimulants have failed as they did with our son.

Comment:
I feel this drug is very short acting at best. We give my 7 year old 1MG at 7pm before bed & at 8:30 we hit the danger zone, as we call it for explosions. We also have a 3 1/2 year old that has to witness these explosions at times. The drug has not worked well for us & we are considering substituting it for Strattera.
