I thought it was about half as effective in the concentration department as Concerta or Adderall XR. I took it for about a month and simply could not deal with the mood swings it put me through so I stopped taking it.

Comment:
I am taking 60mg of strattera and have noticed much better attention span and find it much easier to concentrate. The only thing I don't like about it is that it makes me very tired and I have a big loss in motivation which is not a good thing being in the military.
