    Started off with 25mg for one week, didn't work it was like i was eating a skittle every morning. Then i moved up to 40mg after that, i seriously thought i had the flu even though i wasn't in contact and it wasn't around. I also had very severe mood swings in just that one week and sort of changed the relationships with my friends in a negative way....

    I've been taking Strattera for almost 2 years now after being diagnosed with ADHD at age 23. Results were extremely positive. I found that my mind ceased to wander, tasks at work were much easier to complete and my mind was no longer all over the place.

    My 6 year old was just recently diagnosed with ADHD. This is the first medication we have tried after the diet, exercise, ect. have failed. The doctor started her at 18mg and I was amazed by the second day. I had a new child. But the fourth day she went up to 40mg and things did a 180. Stomach pains, nausea, her temper, everything sky rocketed. So overall not satisfied.

    Strattera has helped me tremendously, especially with hyperactivity symptoms. I am calmer, more patient, less irritable, much more able to control my impulses.
