Comment:
Treated for ADD only. No hyperactivity. Saw marked improvement in focus and grades. Remained disorganized. After about 5 months began to suffer more frequent nausia and vomiting. The Vomiting would onset at 4 am and last until 7 or 8 am. My 12 year old son has become more resistant to taking the drug as a result. We are seeking an alternative.

My son was on this medication for about a year or 2 and at first it seemed to work pretty well, but after a while, some of his symtoms came back and were horrible. Mainly the impulsiveness and fits.

My 11 yr old son has been on many different addhd drugs and this is the ONLY one that actually helped him be able to focus long enough to get his homework done. Granted, we have had to increase it as his tolerance has built up but I am very pleased to say that there are very minimal side effects, lack of appetite compared to the benefits that he has seen with this.

I take 36 mg of Strattera a day. 18mg in the morning and 18mg in the afternoon. At first I had nausea. I also had trouble staying asleep for the first two weeks. The only side effects I have now are that I get dizzy when I stand suddenly, and I have painful menstrual cramps. I'm kind of wondering if I need to take a diferent medication because the only thing I've really noticed is my decre ... Show Full Comment
