My 6 year old son was perscribed tenex because he got vocaltics when he was started adderall xr 10mg for ADHD. Since his hyperness is a real issue, and he got the tics after using the adderall (a med he can't tolerate) we tried guanfacine (tenex). .25mg am and .25mg pm, with the 3rd day raise it to .5 mg 2'xs a day. He passed out about 1/2 hour after taking the med, and we couldn't wake him up. We stopped the guanfacine and are still left with the tics and with the ADHD. We're taking a month to think about our next move. It seems our son is super sesitive to medication. The side effects were potentially worse for him. I wish I had some better news to report.
