Re: Straterra
Apr 8, 2003
i am new at this message board thing,but i am at my wits end. we have been using stattera for atleast 2 months. It has been a night mare. iwas sold on it by being told the the mornings and nights would be better.My son who is 12 was taking 108mg of concerta a day. It was o.K. but the mornings and evenings were wild. the meds didn't work the full 12 hrs. we were told that it would build up in the system and would be a more even day. We spent the first 3 weeks in a whirlwind. We were told to be patient that it seem to talk a little long then first told. they finnally up the dose to 60mg. It seemed to work ok in the morning but afternoons were wild. At 6 weeks i place calls to the nurse only for them to tell me to be patient again. i tried to tell them that they just didn't understand. I had to keep an eye on him 24/7. Then he burn his leg .3degree burns .Called Dr. they put him on 60 mg straterra and 54 mg concerta. He is not sleeping ,not eating and he has lost 5 pounds. He only weighed 74 to begin with. I reduced it to 40mg straterra. A little better. But we need some help.
