... I know it takes a while for strattera to "kick in" I've been on it for 8 months now and i have been taking 80mg for probably the last 5 of them. I feel good, i treat people better and I seem to stay on a task when I start one but recently I feel like maybe i have a tolerence to it?I mean, should I have the dose increased? I can say this, the side effects really do vary per... (38 replies)

... I have seen pluses and minuses to Ritalin. That is wonderful that you were able to find something to help you stay on track but please look closely into all your options before taking this for a long period of time. My nephew took this for several years and has developed turetts syndrom. It started with a twitch in his eyes. He now blinks uncontrollably, which is very... (38 replies)

... I think the Ritalin LA may show some promise. I started on a "monkey bar" project for my kid's swing set earlier this spring. I actually bought the kit last summer. This weekend, after being on Ritalin for a week, I got up in the morning, determined that I was going to get it done, worked on it all day and finished the job. There were some frustrations and a start over,... (38 replies)

... The doctor just upped my Adderall XR dosage from 15 mg to 30 mg. It's only been a couple of days now. I felt a little buzzed from it on day one. Hopefully this will help the concentration level! 15 mg. just wasn't cutting it. I didn't have any side effects, but it really didn't help my concentration. I'm maxed out at 30 mg. now. We'll give this a go for another couple... (38 replies)

... I am now taking 15 mg of Adderall XR. I feel good, but I'm not really noticing much regarding increased focus. I don't have any of the side effects that I've read about, so that is a positive. I just get frustrated because I want these to be miracle drugs! Is the amount I'm taking a low dose? (38 replies)

... I don't have any advice for you, but I have learned something from this thread. I am going to talk to my son's doctor about adding a small dose of ritalin to go with the stratera. I have a long post on my own thread asking for advice if you would like to read it. I am having some of the same problems with my ten year old son. This is definitely a trial and error process,...

... I was taking 10mg of Adderall a day, but while I was taking it, my heart wasn't reacting too well to it. Rapid pulse, irregular beats ect. So my doc started me on 40mg of Strattera a day, and wants me to up it to 80 a day tomarrow. Of corse, after the first dose I immediately noticed the side effects. I started to feel like I was "zoning out" I would walk around and it felt... (38 replies)
... I just went to the doctor to day and he bumped my Adderall XR from 10 mg per day to 15 mg per day. So far, 10 mg has been pretty good. I'm hoping for even better with the increase. (38 replies)
... My 12 yr old son started Stratta in February after having to come off the Adderall. There was some improvement, but was not nearly as focused as he had been with the adderall. So they upped the dose about a month and a half ago. He became much more agitated, and very sleepy and the focus was worse. Well, they lowered the dose back down to where he had been after he had a... (38 replies)

... "The main thing I'm wondering, did you ever experience episodes of fatigue and tiredness while on the strattera? Also, do you get those episodes on Adderal?" -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Yes, I didn't really feel like doing much of anything. Seems like all I did for a week straight was watch seinfeld and history channel. ... (38 replies)

... Haha...nice, I wouldn't mind living with that sorta side effect. With strattera, I noticed that initial out of sync orgasm only in the first 3 days. Then after that it was somewhat reduced in sensation for a week, then everything went back to normal. There were also a few instances where it was hard to initiate urinating. This too disappeared after a week or two. The main... (38 replies)

... I tried strattera about 8 months ago. i immediately noticed sexual side affects...like within 8 hours of taking my first dose. The out of sync orgasm/ejaculation happened first, then within a day or 2 the pain after ejaculation came. needless to say, after about a week of that was enough for me. i have limits, and i have lines in the sand that i don't want to cross. and...

... I just picked up a copy of the book 'You mean I'm not Lazy, Stupid, or Crazy'. What I find interesting is how the book is formatted for us ADD folks. It has short paragraphs, large print and so far I've noticed that they don't carry sentences over from one page to the next. Interesting. It's amazing how the more I learn about ADD, the more I'm able to recognize my own... (38 replies)

... There are several of us here who have kids taking a combination of Strattera and a stimulant. My 13yo son started on Strattera last summer and over the Christmas break we began slowing adding Metadate (a long-acting methylphenidate like Concerta). We are extremely pleased with how he is doing on it. Like your son, he has a better appetite on both meds than on one or the... (1 replies)

... I should change the thread to "Adderall Thoughts". I've been on Adderall XR for about a week now. So far, so good. I had the desire to get a lot of projects started and finished over the weekend. I worked in the yard all day Saturday and felt great. And best of all...I didn't get bored in the middle of any of my projects and quit! The only limiting factor is that I did... (38 replies)

... I don't plan on posting a reply every day, but want to post things I notice when first on a new med. Today was the first time that I had to sit through any lengthy meetings since I started on Adderall XR. I made it through one that was 2.5 hours and was pretty attentive throughout. Also, compared to Strattera, I'm not feeling as flat emotionally. I know it's only been a... (38 replies)
