Comment:
I began taking this medication for A.D.D. while in college, 25 mg once a day. It was alternative to Ritalin and other stimulants, which I took from the fourth until the tenth grade. Strattera kept my mind clear; I didn't have a thousand thoughts racing through my head, and kept me real calm and quiet, but hyperactivity isn't an issue with me.

I was prescribed this because there was concern about the other drugs being habit forming. I tried it for two weeks and started feeling depressed.

Comment:
I was taking this medication for ADD not ADHD. I am 25 years old. I became extremely aggressive towards everyone. Very irritable, rude and mean in general. Within 2 weeks of starting this drug. This all went away in less than a week after my doctor took me off it.
