    I was on 40mg for about a week and didn't notice much difference. When I upped to 80mg (as the doctor directed) I noticed differences but they were bad ones. I did not feel like I was focusing any better. However, I was experiencing the issues on the warning label: mood changes, anxiety, depression, and sadness. When I had suicidal thoughts, I knew it was time to get off of that stuff and ... Show Full Comment

    I have adult ADD. This is the first and only ADD med I have ever taken. (Have only been taking it for 5 days!) I have ALREADY seen a drastic improvement in focus and concentration. I am a 26 yr old female in college and feel so much better when doing school work. My mind doesnt drift off and I feel so much sharper and brighter. Mind no longer feels like Im in a fog. I feel like my IQ has been in ... Show Full Comment

    I think it really worked for a while. I am at 100mg for about 4 months. My blood pressure has increased, the focus is not as good as it was in the beginning. But the chronic constipation is the absolute worst symptom. I eat raisin bran every night plus a lot of vegetables. I have decided to stop taking it because the side effects now are worse than the benefits. All the info I read says you do n ... Show Full Comment

    I had commented earlier about getting on Strattera after the first three weeks. Let me say that the difference between week 3 and week 5 is a LOT. Mid-30s male, good physical condition. But once I got into the 40 mg dose (and needing about 60) my insurance said "Try Ritalin first." Thank God. My gut was constantly very, very sore, my digestion was completely out of whack, the sexua ... Show Full Comment

    I have mixed feeling about the drug. It has absolutely helped with my ADHD. If I forget to take it I know because of my lack of focus. One issue I have is that it seems to have different levels of effectiveness on a day to day basis. Some days I am GREAT, and some it appears to have no effect at all. I take 80mg one time in the morning with food. Taking it with food helped the nausea issue. I ... Show Full Comment
