Starting Tenex tonight

After finally discussing the ADHD medication with the neurologist that the developmental pediatrician prescribed, we have started Tenex (Guanfacine/Intuniv). It may cause low blood pressure. I'm nervous. And worried. I never thought I'd be one of THOSE moms that caves and gives their kid ADHD meds. Aren't we all a little ADHD? Ugh. With the threat of him falling behind in school, how could I say no? Hopefully, we will see an improvement in his attention, both at home and at school, and the risks will pay off.
