I absolutely hated this drug. The drug would last for about an hour then i would crash and become extremely tired to the point where I would doze off. It made me not want to talk to anyone and feel like a zombie. I'd also get goosebumps randomly. I tried different doses but all of them didn't work. I recommend adderall or focalin XR.

Comment:
Strattera can work really well, but you MUST start at a VERY low dose and titrate up SLOOOOOOOOOOOOWLY. This is so much more true with Strattera than with any other drug I have ever tried or heard of. If you go too high and/or too fast with dosage, you can get a train wreck. You'll decide that it isn't for you when it could actually make a lot of difference in your condition, which is what ... Show Full Comment
