There are no drug interactions when taking both Vyvanse and Intuniv.

My daughter tried Intuniv and it made her really tired and lethargic, she never did adjust well to it, so we had to discontinue it.

Intuniv is often used to treat ADHD symtoms, but is also used to treat high blood pressure.

Monitor your son and keep notes, that way you can accurately tell the Dr. how he reacts.

Take care!
