I've been on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>strattera</span> for two weeks and the only strong side effect I seem to have is that I get really tired or fatigued around 2:00pm. Will this side effect subside over ti4'>me? Is there anyway to lessen it? I've tried other ADD 4'>medications however because they are stimulants I tend to get really agitated or even a little paranoid when I'm on them so I am hoping that 4'>strattera works out ok. Are there any other non-stimulant ADD 4'>medications?

What should I do?
Hi, I've been on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>strattera</span> for 6 days now and when I take it in the morning, about 2-3 hours 4'>after taking it I get pretty intense anxiety (heart beats fast, chest feels heavy, my whole body gets tense, my breathing feels shallow) I'd say this anxiety fully subsides in around an hour. It's the sa4'>me reaction I've had to stimulants, which is why I'm trying 4'>strattera. My doctor gave 4'>me 0.254'>mg of xanax for this reaction and it takes it away COMPLETELY.
Turns out, and my heart had to stop 3 ti4'>mes, and i had to be in the hospital for 3 weeks, but, I have chronic PE's (blood clots that get trapped in the lungs), the symptoms were showing that there is a huge clot 4'>making it to where i can't breathe, because the heart cannot pump blood to the lungs. These symptoms were not caused by <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>strattera</span>, but they were aggrevated by the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>strattera</span>. Interestingly enough, i suppose.
I'm about two-three weeks clean off opiates but, on a very very small dose of suboxone for maintance treat4'>ment. I was doing pretty good until recently...why am I sooooooo tired?? I literally can fall asleep sitting here. I fall asleep driving, at work, in class!! What is wrong with 4'>me?? Is this normal?? I just drank two cups of coffee, took a five hour energy shot, slept in till 2pm, and 4'>still feel like I can hardly keep my eyes open!! Any suggestions, advice?? I'm going to loose it!
I finally stopped taking concerta at the end of march, and was prescribed to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>strattera</span>. I have been on 4'>40 4'>mg for nearly 3 weeks. I've been feeling a lot less anxious since taking 4'>strattera but 4'>still have trouble focusing, staying on task, and getting things done. I hate the side effects. I feel tired all the ti4'>me and I feel irritable. I need to be taking so4'>mething that will work both for my ADHD and anxiety. What do you guys think about 4'>strattera?
well i've been off the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>strattera</span> for so4'>me ti4'>me now and i feel like a senile old woman but no more stomach pain or nausea so ill just deal with losin things or not re4'>member so4'>methings. and been off the paxil for so4'>meti4'>me also, didnt tell my dr but she keeps pushing the ideal of takin it and im tired of repeating myself about it. i took it for a long ti4'>me and it makes 4'>me so 4'>sleepy that i couldnt function, yeah so my moods r all over the place, but im up and moving!!
A little cranky over breakfast choices but that is not unusual. She did 4'>mention as she was leaving that she felt nauseous and that she was always tired at school and never felt good at school. She said her teacher is always asking her what's wrong and that she usually just says she's tired. I am going to have to start really watching her sleep cycles. She gets in bed around normal ti4'>me but I can't say for sure how well she is truly sleeping.
Today, I am just tired of trying to figure out what's wrong with 4'>me. I have overall aches and pains and I have been avoiding friends' phonecalls. I am looking on-line because I can't figure out why the 4'>strattera doesn't work. I could feel how I was affected when I went off of Lamictal (bad). I'm also concerned because all of the 4'>meds listed say that I have to be careful with liver enzy4'>mes going haywired. My last couple of blood tests say that I have elevated liver enzy4'>me levels.
30 bc of snow so I told her she could co4'>me ho4'>me and rest if she was 4'>still tired. She was wired! Asking to have candy for breakfast ... Really? Told 4'>me it would help wake her up ... She see4'>med really awake to 4'>me but keep complaining she was tired. Got ho4'>me from school at 1:00 and she was over the top. Going a mile a minute, eating, talking nonstop ....
I'm 23 years old and at first I thought I was falling asleep randomly even though I do not feel tired. But the other day I passed out while walking into my bedroom. However, I did not wake up until morning, completely confused of what I was doing on the floor and what had happened. Most nights I will be in the middle of so4'>mething or on the phone, not feel a bit tired, but instead wide awake.
if 4'>medication wasn't one of them ?
My 4'>meds stopped working this year and I'm back on the 4'>medication 4'>merry go round going on and off different things. I feel funny, tired or anxious every day, and everything I read on every 4'>med just seems to be so4'>meones horror story with that 4'>med. (so4'>meone had reaction, went crazy ect.) I'm just scared of all the changes and 4'>meds. Is anyone else here on the 4'>merry go round again also? It's been 2 months now, and is getting very tiring. Just need so4'>me encourage4'>ment, thanks friends.
If the ADHD diagnosis was accurate, and he has not received benefit from the stimulant 4'>medications, the non-stimulant <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>strattera</span> might be a worthwhile option.
Recently we have tried other drugs and her symptoms of aggression have increased. She is currently on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>strattera</span>, serequel, and hydroxizine (to help her sleep). She has only been on the serequel 2 days and it is not helping. The risperidone was stopped im4'>mediately because of weight gain. I need so4'>me suggestions on what we can do. HELP! I am tired of getting beat up, and I especially feel very bad for her because she cannot communicate with 4'>me how she is feeling.
We had NEVER concidered 4'>medication until about 8 months ago. My son was tired of not being liked, feeling angry, sad and felt he needed help beyond just counseling. We connected with a psychiatrist who tried several differnet 4'>medications @ first (they didn't work for my son) and then finally put him on Concerta 364'>mg 2pills daily and WOW - what a difference. My son is happy, more attentive, friendly and less agitated.
My boyfriend Ryan was diagnosed with severe depression, ADD, and social anxiety almost 2 years ago. Since then he's been on wellbutrin, 4'>strattera, lexapro, prozac, buspar, & ritalin with no change. He took the depression 4'>meds for at least 2 months at a ti4'>me before changing. For about 9 month's he's been on zoloft (least side effects for him) & now nortriptilene to help intensify the effect. He's been taking the Nortrip since May and there's no change.
Serequel really helped 4'>me. I have ADHD too so 4'>after 4 months on Serequel, they put 4'>me on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>strattera</span> first. I 4'>still see4'>med spaced out. Then I begged for Adderall 4'>after taking 3 304'>mg for 3 days my girlfriend got for 4'>me as a test. The Adderall has made 4'>me a different person. I use to be called ADD boy by my friends parents. LOL The only thing I have to watch is my blood pressure. I'm 42 and the adderall has the reverse affect as that of a normal person. It calms and focuses 4'>me.
What did your PCP say was a side effect of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>strattera</span>? (Just curious, as I take <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>strattera</span>, though not for ADD.) Good luck getting everything sorted out. It can be hard, and not everyone ends up getting a diagnosis for their symptoms.
He will climb on any table or surface and let himself drop on the floor without expressing any pain, just laughing 4'>afterwards. He used to scream and thrash things all over the room until he'd get tired and so4'>meti4'>mes would not be able to sleep for 3 days in a row and when it looked like he might start to fall asleep he'd jerk out of sleep and get up again. He tried to poke his sister's eyes with his fingers. His psychologist stated "boys will be boys".

My psychiartist place 4'>me on effexor and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>strattera</span> which both worked marvelously for all symptoms. I was on this combination for about 1 1/2 years. The problem with the effexor though, is that if I did not take the 4'>medication right on ti4'>me, I beca4'>me quite dizzy. I wanted to be taken off of it. My doctor switched 4'>me to Lexapro (for depression and anxiety) one month ago.
This morning feeling ok. Tired and unmotivated but it's only 8. We'll see how it goes once 4'>meds kick in. So as of now.. Lamictal, wellbutrin, 4'>strattera, klonopin, fish oils and vitamins.. in AM 4'>afternoon I take more supple4'>ments for cleansing right now.. and my vitamin C... not taking those with the morning 4'>meds as fiber can reduce the absorption of so4'>me 4'>meds and read that vitamin c, or acids can lesson the effects of 4'>strattera so try to avoid that.
Not because I wasn't tired, but my head was so clear, I wanted to savor the night. I'm diagnosed with General/social anxiety and depression, but I think I really have ADHD, which caused my anxiety which caused my depression. I have all the symptoms of it that I never realized. It's hard for 4'>me to even function anymore, because of all my racing thoughts, which usually end up being negative.
If Adderall isn't helping you, see if you can try Provigil or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>strattera</span>, or even Ritalin. Provigil and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>strattera</span> are incredibly expensive, though, and not all insurances will pay for Provigil. Good luck--the brain fog stinks, doesn't it! Nancy T.
