My son has been on 60 mg. Straterra for about 4 months. I've been on 80 mg. for 3 months. We had the usual sleepiness for the first couple days and other intermittent side effects while we were getting used to it, but nothing earth shattering. It was more like a month before Straterra was fully effective, even though the brochure said it would be about 2-3 weeks, and I noticed some improvements even up to 6 weeks.

It's too bad that it takes so long to see results and that there's no way to tell at first if it will even work. It makes it difficult to know whether or not to stay with it in hopes things will get better or to cut your loss and use something else. We were both using Adderall and it wasn't working all that well, so we didn't have much to lose by trying Straterra in preference to trying another stimulant medication.
