Frequently asked questions about Guanfacine ER

What is guanfacine ER?

Guanfacine ER (generic for Intuniv) is a medication used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in adults. ADHD makes it difficult for adults to pay attention and control actions and behavior. Guanfacine ER helps control these symptoms by calming nerve impulses in the brain.

Originally called hyperkinetic impulse disorder, ADHD is one of the most common childhood diagnoses, affecting nearly 4 percent of all adults in the United States. Research shows a strong genetic link, which means you are more likely to have ADHD if your parent or sibling also has ADHD.

Looking for a safe, effective way to help control your ADHD? Talk to your doctor about whether guanfacine ER is right for you.

What is guanfacine ER used to treat?

Guanfacine ER is used to treat ADHD. Doctors usually include it as part of a total therapy program that includes social, educational, and psychological treatments. Guanfacine ER is different from many ADHD drugs in that it is not a stimulant. It can help reduce certain symptoms related to ADHD including temper, impulse, hyperactivity, inattentiveness, and distraction.

How does guanfacine ER work?

Researchers are not entirely sure exactly how guanfacine works. The leading theory is that guanfacine positively affects receptors in the brain that improve memory, impulse control and attention span, and reduce distractions. While research is still being conducted into how guanfacine ER helps control ADHD, the drug has been shown to be safe and effective in treating symptoms of the condition.

What are the most common side effects of guanfacine ER?

While adverse reactions to guanfacine ER are uncommon, some patients who take the drug may experience mild side effects, including nausea, vomiting, headache, dry mouth, lethargy, decrease appetite, decrease libido, irritability, weakness, and constipation.

If you experience any severe side effects, or if the side effects you experience do not go away, tell your doctor. Rare, more serious side effects have been known to occur. Call your doctor immediately if you experience any of the following:

Rash Fainting Blurred vision A slower heart rate

Don’t use guanfacine ER if you have a known allergy to the medication.

How long does it take for guanfacine ER to work?

While you may notice an improvement in your symptoms earlier, it can take 4 to 8 weeks to reap the maximum benefit while taking the proper dosage of guanfacine ER.

Speak to your doctor before stopping guanfacine ER. Discontinued use of guanfacine ER can cause a rise in blood pressure and a higher heart rate. Monitor your blood pressure if your doctor lowers your dosage or if you stop using guanfacine ER.

What is the typical starting dose of guanfacine ER?

The typical starting dose of guanfacine ER is 1 mg per day. This dose may be adjusted by your doctor, depending on your weight and tolerability.

Take guanfacine ER once daily, either in the morning or in the evening. Try to take it at the same time every day, and avoid taking it with high-fat meals, as that can increase your exposure. You shouldn’t break, crush, or chew the tablets, as that can speed up the release rate of guanfacine ER.
