Dear Frybread
The jury is still out...we have been on Strattera for three weeks now(should just be starting to work) with one 15 mg dose of Ritalin in the morning...sort of like jump starting the car. While not perfect school has been fine even during finals...he is sleeping well and eating more.
At times he is edgy but maybe that is just typical 13 yr old boy being nagged by his Mom. At first I thought he was totally in a fog and sort of slow acting but when you go from "constant babble" to occasional silence the swing makes you worry. Will stop the Ritalin in the next week or so when we are out of school. Have to see how the summer music and sports go..if he can do it without anything but Strattera. I really worry about long term side effects..espec those brought up relating to sexual side effects but for right now he is sleeping for the first time in years and less hyper...how much of hyperness is sleep deprivation..who knows. Write anytime.
