You and your doctor must weigh the potential risks and benefits when deciding to use Intuniv (guanfacine
) or any medication.
This does not mean he/she/anyone can guarantee that there will be no adverse effects. Since no medication is ever 100% safe in 100% of people, the key issue is whether the potential benefits out-weigh the risks. In the end, the only way to really find out is to try it.
