When I was diagnosed, my primary started me on 40mg then 80mg for Strattera... I had the same exact issues. He took me off it immediatly, and started me on 5mg Ritalin. After some more trial & error, I'm on 20mg Ritalin now.

With the Strattera, it would have been nice if it would have worked. Strattera is in a family of non-narcotics that a doc can give you 3 re-fills at a time, which is nice. However, if Strattera doesn't work, normally nothing in that family of RX's works, and you have to go to the narcotic side of things (like a Wilbutrin or a Ritalin). No need to fear them, because one of them works for me. Its just a pain because everytime I need a re-fill, I have to go to my primary to pick up a script. I think thats what your doc is getting at... if this doesn't work (which it sounds like it doesn't), then theres hoops that have to be jumped through.

That reminds me... I have to get a re-fill...
