Common Questions and Answers about Does strattera give you energy


649926 tn?1297661380 Hi Everyone - Hope <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>you</span> are all well :) I just started Ritalin last week to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>give</span> me more energy and help me with my decling cognition. I was on Amantadine for the energy and it didn't even make a difference. Instead of trying Provigal the docs thought that Ritalin would give me energy AND help with focus/cognition. Well I feel so sick, dizzy, stomach upset, shaky, it's awful, BUT if I stay on task and don't stop I really can be productive and accomplish lots of things.
Avatar f tn I am now on strattera which is not a stimulant but <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> work well for ADD symptoms. If <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>you</span> have not tried this med, I would recommend it if organization/other symptoms are an issue. The problems caused by ADD/ADHD can really be very hard and difficult for anyone trying to work/study/live and be productive....& being a stay at home was essential! I can understand how many would have problems w/ stimulants b/c they are quite harsh and can become a problem to many w/ addictions.
Avatar dr m tn For them it’s a major chore to get through their day, let alone have the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>energy</span> to innovate and come up with new ideas. For those of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>you</span> who find yourself in this situation, it’s probably not the amount of sleep but the kind of sleep you’re getting that’s impinging on your creativity. Here’s what I mean: Sleep is composed of six stages: awake, stage 1, stage 2, stage 3, stage 4, and REM (rapid eye movement).
990354 tn?1307136486 it doesn't give you all of the side effects but <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>give</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>you</span> some of them.also tell your sister to look up if anyone has every died from taken adderall.don't mean to scare you. and as you know you shouldn't take something that was not giving to you by a doctor to take.And even Doctors these days give out these drugs like they are candy and many people use these drugs as if they can't do anything with out them.
Avatar m tn Yeah, so when they start working do they stop you been confused and slow in the head ? Do <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>you</span> feel more esablished as a person ? Do <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>you</span> act and think quicker ? It's just I'm hoping these change my life for the better. I have an inteligent mind but I find it hard to express in front of people because of the a anxiety and paranioa feeling so I stutter sometimes and it all comes out wrong.
Avatar f tn I know this medication works different for every child.... I wil keep <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>you</span> posted and tell <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>you</span> how he <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span>... I have to try it first before I give up on it...
544292 tn?1268886268 Good Evening Lovely Tramadol Warriors! So glad <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>you</span> are here. So glad <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>you</span> are choosing to join us. This is the place to be if you want off Tramadol. Lots of love, information and empathy here!
Avatar f tn Recess (physical activity) is proven to be one of the best things for a child with either adhd or spd. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> your son have an IEP or 504. If not I can <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>give</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>you</span> guidelines. It is something that you want to get going as soon as possible . I think seeing an OT is very possible. And I still am having problems with a doctor prescribing the meds that have been prescribed given the original ADHD diagnosis.
Avatar n tn Don't <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>give</span> up hope. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>you</span> may have to see your Dr. dozens of times for med changes before you hit on a combo that works. I am a Nurse with fibro and am now on Effexor and I also take Adderall 10 mg am and again at noon if needed. Provigil kept me awake but has worked well for many other people. Each of us react differently. you may also benefit from a sleep aide at night such as Ambien or Lunesta.
990354 tn?1307136486 Thanks to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>you</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> get better, and than a little worse and I'm sure better again! I have just hit a little bump in the road, and I am simply having a hard time facing the reality my life has become! It's overwhelming, it's scary, and it's life.... If I can kick opiates I can def get through anything that comes by way. I just have to remember to take this one day at a time, sometimes one minute at a time... you two must stay strong as well, and no more slips witsend...
Avatar n tn But, to quantify my experience with it, it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> seem to work and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>you</span> shouldn't let the fact I can't handle it effect your decisions. I might suggest though that you carefully watch your dosing whether you try SAMe, 5htp, precsription anti-depressents or whatever. It seems in Fibro and CFS that many peoples Central Nervous Systems get hyper sensitive, whether your talking about a upper or a downer. So I highly suggest you start off slow with lose dosing and see how it goes.
Avatar f tn I have been following the Primal Blueprint diet and really love it, it is tasty an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> not starve <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>you</span>. For meds I have found that adding Zonegrann to my cocktail has done the trick to help control the skin sensitivity. For anxiety/depression I am on Zoloft, strattera and Lyrica, for Restless Legs, I am on, Requip. Yes, it does seem like a lot to me also, but it works, and finally I get some relief.
544292 tn?1268886268 This thread is full of helpful and kind people who want to help <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>you</span> get off this terrible drug. Please snuggle in and make yourself comfy. I know <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>you</span> can do it!
Avatar n tn He seems to have a few mental problems and he has seen a physciatrist who says hes normal but he <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> some pretty awful stuff. Can <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>you</span> help?
918457 tn?1244649282 thank you my son is going to be 5 soon and has adhd i dont want to put him on med but after your note i think i well try it thank <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>you</span> he <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> the same things
Avatar n tn I started calling her out on it (at least when I knew for a fact it was a lie) and a lot of other people do the same, but it doesn't stop her. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> your daughter only lie to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>you</span>? Or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> she lie to everyone? If she only lies to you, she may be scared of your reactions to her actions for some reason. She may see you as judgmental and fear she isn't up to your standards. There may absolutely no reason for it, but for some reason she might feel that way.
Avatar n tn There's disability offered for these cases, support groups, mentoring (which my son received thru the state when I was single), counseling for you and him because it takes it toll on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>you</span> and your social life. There are also sitters that will come to your house to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>give</span> you a break thru disability/ADHD. Now my son is in football and martial arts and has met alot of young boys who has the same condition. I hope this helps and what ever you do find some SUPPORT don't try to do it all yourself!
405614 tn?1329147714 you would think with all the advertisements for the med that the Dr would have samples to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>give</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>you</span> until your insurance approves it. Thats how I get my Lidoderm patches, he just saves them out for me and I drop by the office and voila I have a brown paper bag of relief. I would cut off my feet (just kidding) to get something to lift the brain fog.... Good luck with all the insurance stuff.... Wow, Maui, can I come too??? Please??? Can I??? Can I??? I will be good, I promise...
Avatar f tn That means that your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>energy</span> production at the cellular level is compromised. Next appointment with your dr. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>you</span> may want to ask him/her to advise you on how to improve your lymphatic system, in order to restore your cell's "dry state". It is the main body system that will help you at the cellular level, with this particular issue. At the "dry state" oxygen uptake is improved and cell energy is improved greatly.
405614 tn?1329147714 Wow, I wonder if the insurance company would have paid to keep you in the hospital and on the blood thinners if <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>you</span> couldn't pay for them. It seems like it would have endangered your life to send <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>you</span> home without them, and they would be liable. I'm glad they reimbursed you! I have a friend that contracted MRSA (drug resistant staff infection) in her lungs when she was in the hospital with pneumonia.
Avatar n tn you are changing so much in your life to try and help your little boy, that makes you a wonderful mom! I think once <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>you</span> get him out there and he can expend some of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>energy</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>you</span> will have an easier time with him. Also vitamin D comes from the sun and it is VERY important to have sufficient amounts of vitamin D to use the seratonin in the way it is suppose to be used by the body.
Avatar f tn Focalin is not approved for children under 6 years, no stimulant medications are for that matter. Vyvanse has essentially the same side effects as Focalin. I am an adult taking Vyvanse and have had experience with all other ADHD meds. Vyvanse, though stronger than some meds, seems to step up to the plate where all the others fall short in some way. Focalin/Concerta/Ritalin all helped calmed me down, however did not help with focus and concentration as much.
Avatar n tn I agree there are other more natural ways -- some of which you listed -- to help with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>energy</span> levels during tx. In the end, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>you</span> gotta to what <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>you</span> gotta do to get through. We all are different and some things work better for us than others.
Avatar f tn thank <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>you</span> for your reply ' yes early on when he was much younger he was on tenex ' for lots years he as been on many meds rispertorl ' catapres patches clonidine' paxil' which really mess him up because he as had a problem taking his meds ' most of his life when he was younger i would allways make sure he took them ' but as he grew up ' in his teens it was very hard to keep him on track' so when he would miss a dose' or take them very late in the day he would be very anger' anything would tic h
Avatar n tn I want to know what I am doing wrong. My daughter <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> not listen to a thing I say. She in fact does the complete opposite of what I ask her to do. She yells at me, she tells me no!, she just peed on the floor in her room the other day, and then she peed in the bath tub, when she was not even taking a bath. She keeps getting into my makeup and destroying it. She said she does these things to make me mad.
1666464 tn?1303228958 The way the meds act on you, I am beginning to wonder if the anxiety and depression are really the major issue, and the ADD/ADHD diagnosis was a quick fix. Obviously, can't tell from the info <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>you</span> have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>give</span> - only going by the way <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>you</span> reacted with the meds and a lot of other things can come into play. The good thing is that with the HMO, you should be able to spend some quality time with the doctor. Do it. Tell them everything.
Avatar n tn Did a doctor prescribe this for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>you</span>? I think <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>you</span> can be honest with them and tell them. Find one <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>you</span> like and trust. If you don't like what one has to say, find another one. you may want to talk to a friend or family member who could recommend someone to you. Merry Christmas and Good luck.
Avatar f tn Hi nicole, I went back and reread your post. Some things bother me. Lack of information is the main one. If you were to go over to the Child Behavior forum and scan through the posts - you would see a lot that start out with "Out of Control 4 year old". A lot of what you described is not that unusual for a 4 year old. I got caught up in your doctors diagnosis, and wanted to give you more information of how to tell one thing from another.
Avatar f tn DONT DO THAT LOL) if he functioned well without drugs then he may be trying to abuse them, some doctors will <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>give</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>you</span> whatever they think <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>you</span> want to make a buck. but if he cant manage his life sober then he may need drugs. bottom line is, you have to remember that it is his choice, in my hatered of drugs i didnt like my best friend on concerta, but again, he needed it seriously. just keep an eye on him/her... and comunicate. if he handles his life then it may be just what he/she needs.
