This drug made me depressed, lethargic, apathetic, and foggy. I didn't make it past 2 weeks on this drug. I was much happier as soon as I stopped taking it.

My son started this about 2 months ago. So far the teacher sees alot of improvement. He does have a tendancy to cry easily. And has to eat before he takes it. Otherwise going well hes up to 40 mg.

My son was diagnosed with ADHD when he was 5. He took Adderall first, which was a nightmare. We switched to Strattera and he reacted very well to the drug. He has been on it for 2 years.
