... f proper sleep can lead to impaired mental function or health problems. So you may want to consider all that in the future. But if you want to take drugs anyway, Strattera would be a better choice than amphetamines for ADD. ... (3 replies)
... Hello, I started concerta a few months ago. I was dead asleep on the couch at 7pm after taking it at 4pm. My ADD therapist told me to take it before bed. SOOOOO much better. My son takes it as well and we both take it at night. No side effects now. It may help. I don't know why your MD wouldn't have suggested this already. I sleep like a baby. Shelly (4 replies)
... Hi all, Today is my son's first day on strattera and he's in tears b/c he's so tired. It breaks my heart. I hear this is common side effect as is the nausea he feels.

Tomorrow we're going to give him the dose later in the day to help with the fatigue but my question for you is... how long does it normally... (4 replies)

... Hi, I am a 30 y/o male with AADD. I aso have sleep apnea. I was diagnosed with my sleep apnea in 2002 and have a cpap machine since, things went well until I began taking strattera.

I was able to "buckle down" and... (3 replies)
... e, thanks for the board. I'm sure no one else can understand our unique challenges quite like WE can understand each other's. My girl is 10 years old and started Strattera 3 months ago. ... (98 replies)
... Hi, My 14 yr. daughter was on Strattera for a short time (3 weeks). She liked the effect, calm and more focused, but it did have some side effects that were unpleasant...sweats, sleepiness during the day, sleeplessness during the night, stomach ache, black-out vision on quick rising. She was willing to put up with the side effects, but after about 3 weeks she developed... (10 replies)
... He has "experimented" with taking half his dose and while it does help alleviate the symptoms he says the effect if gives him is very comparable to when a full dose starts to wear off. So maybe he needs 30mg? His pills are 20mg each so maybe we should see about getting 10 mg pills. Also thank you for the idea of non-stimulant medications. He has basically been told that its...
