My 5 yo ASD DS was prescribed Tenex 0.5mg /day for focus/staying on task.  he is also on Risperdal 0.5mg/night for aggression.  Any feedback on the Tenex,gd or bad?

I gave DS his 1st dose Tenex this morning.  No sleepiness.

My DD was on guanfacine, which is tenex and it made her lethargic and have nightmares. We took her off of it and now she's on dispersal and doing so much better...

DS takes it and does well with controlling his impulses.

DS has been on Risperdal since July,it has helped w/his aggression,but he needs something to help him focus,he is all over the place in class.  Hoping the Tenex can help.
