I went on 40 mg of Strattera as an alternative to Concerta. The drug caused severe drowsiness and chills. I could not get warm no matter what I did. All I wanted to do was sleep. I also felt sick all day even if I took it with a lot of food.

Comment:
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. The ARNP wants to increase but im waiting tell after school starts back after summer. And see how he goes no reason for higher dose when not in school.
