    Went to Dr on JAN 2. She gave me the 30 sample pack and stated she will have her office refer my to be evaluated by a psychologist to be tested (why I have to go to a psychologist to be tested for ADD is beyond me). Started this medication slowly 18mg, then 25mg, then 40mg and now 60mg. The side effects were immediate. Piercing headache, overly sensitive to light, fatigue and severe drowsiness. Wh ...

    I switched from the stimulant Vyvanse to Strattera. The beginning nausea was horrible, like having morning sickness every night (when I was told to take due to severe nausea side effects). I stuck with it and the nausea disappeared. Strattera worked well for a few months. Unlike Vyvanse, I wasn't anxious, having mini-panic attacks,and could drink a cup of coffee without freaking out.

    My 15 yr old daughter was taking 80mg for about 6 wks. We determined it was not working. Went to the pharmacy to get higher dose prescription filled and learned it was going to cost over $200 per month. We will never know if higher dose would have worked cause cannot afford it!

    This is a comment to warn of possible over-dosage. A slight background is necessary to understand that this is a risk from IMPROPER use, and not Proper use. Straterra seems to be beneficial for a number of people and I don't want to dissuade proper use. The short version is I was 'Diagnosed' with ADD in highschool in an utterly subjective manner (made worse by falsehood I told my ... Show Full Comment
