Re: Straterra
Feb 24, 2003
In response to your post about the long term effects of Ritalin. I started on the medication about 14 years ago with a short 4 year break in the middle. I have been back on ritalin for the past 3 years. I am now 21 years old taking a 20mg Metadate (ritalin ER) in the morning and a 20mg ritalin in the after noon. Somedays I take a 10mg ritalin in the evening in addition to everything else. In the recent years I have had my dosage increase twice. The ritalin has helpd me, but the time has come for a change. Tomorrow I am switching to Strattera. I have become fed up with the daily headaches, insomnia, and sweating. The headaches have gotten significantly worst over the years. Moreover, I have maintained the same body weight for the past 6 years at 120lbs which is too low for my height (5'10"). I am excited to try Strattera and hopefully my mood will be much better. The side effects I have experienced can go on and on, but hopefully I will not experience as many of these with Strattera. However, I am not looking forward to the sleepiness that I have read about from other posts.
