This is one of the posts I have found on this board about the sweating/blood pressure issue that I mentioned above:

Ok I have had it with this medicine! The side effects are now so annoying that I have made an appt to see my Dr Tommorrow. I have taken Strattera for 3 months now and the daily clear thinking is gone. All I have left is that I wake up at 6am every day. That's it. The male side effects went away after 2 months but the cold sweats, high blood pressure, headaches and stomach problems have made me miserable while I am on this medicine.


I am 31 and so far I have tried adderall XL and strattera. I tried stopping strattera over the weekend and my sweating problem got much better, but in return I am tired all the time. Yesterday I even fell asleep at the wheel and almost crashed on the way home from work. Over the weekend I was feeling very sad and I was spending my money irresponsibly. At least I gave it a good try, but now its just not in my best interests to keep taking it. If for nothing other than its effect on raising my blood pressure ( I am also taking altace for my BP). I even had to get another medicine Pro-Bathine for the very excessive sweating. My hair is soaking wet and my shirt is also wet around my shoulders and neck. But the worst part is that I am not hot I have this irritating cold sweat that makes me feel like I am sick.

I took it again last night and as before I woke up at 6 am this morning. But the drive to work was a nightmare. Right now my blood pressure is so high that I have a severe headache. It just doesn't seem like it is doing what I hoped it would.

...and here is another post from this board.....
I am 28 yrs old and have been on straterra for a short period of time. At 40mg I am having major side effects that I am wondering if anyone else has. I have serious hot flashes where I sweat. Sometimes it is a cold sweat with chills. I have not seen anyone else write about this so I am a little alarmed. This happens throughout the day.
