Among the side effects I notice are very cold hands and feet. In fact, I just bought a pair of fleece gloves last night in the grocery store to wear while I read, sitting on the sofa. I live in TX, where our winters are mild. I normally keep my thermostat at 68 degrees, but since taking Strattera I'm still cold when the room is 73 degrees. I work out 5x/week, so poor circulation can't be blamed.

Other side effects I have: light constipation, light dry mouth, increased heart rate, increased blood pressure (I'm keeping my eye on this one), occasional insomnia, loss of appetite. I've had about 5 instances where my heart skipped a beat (palpitations).

The good effects for me are: decreased appetite, increased energy (which in itself helps me get more done), less sleepy, can get up easier in the morning.

I can't tell if this drug is helping me. I was recently diagnosed w/ ADD, and so far, I don't think I've noticed enough of a benefit from Strattera. Haven't noticed a change in the ability to focus. I'm giving it 2 more weeks.

Thos are almost exactly what i am feeling about 2 weeks in, how long have you been taking strattera? I have not yet noticed anything, but i'm going to at least give it till the 6-8 week point before i assess any differences possitive or negative.
Oh yeah, I forgot to mention: I sometimes get this weird tight feeling in my face, like all the muscles are contracted, esp. around my forehead and eyes. Like I'm really stressed -- but I'm not.
