Guafecine for a 4 year old

I took my 4 year old daughter to a developmental pediatrician today and she was diagnosed with ADHD. She has a very high IQ that when combined with the ADHD causes her to become extremely frustrated and anxious because she knows what she is supposed to do but canít focus long enough to do it. Since her ADHD is pretty significant and really causing her to struggle she was prescribed Guafecine which I guess is Tenex when I googled it. She is supposed to take 0.25mg (quarter of a tablet) every morning. She said the side effects shouldnít bother her but that she could be more tired than usual. I hate the idea of having to medicate her at such a young age but itís so sad to watch her struggle. Has anyone else used this medication for their child and if so how was it? Have you had any experience medicating a child this young with this or any other ADHD medication?
