I don't see the reasoning behind giving Strattera at night. Yes, I know it makes the kids sleepy and out of it (that's what I hate about it). But I find it wears off after about 5 hours, so when your child wakes up, hasn't the night before's dose wore off and you are w/ a child w/ no meds in them? In my other post I stated that I felt Strattera takes an active child and within an hour sedates him to a "drugged" state ie: sleepy, lifeless, not hungry, not wanting to play etc... I can't handle watching this. This is about our 3rd week and I am thinking of going back to Concerta, although I hated the mood extremes after concerta wore off! (homework time) If I am going to switch back, I want to quickly make this decision, but keep reading people's posts saying it may take awhile for body to get use to this med. but it HAS been 3 weeks and I haven't had the heart to go to the 40 mgs. where the doc says he needs to be HELP!!!
