User Comments about Strattera
25 Oct 2011 I am a college student and i was prescribed strattera for the 1st week of 30mg once a day then the following week 80mg, the first day i started to take the 80mg i was like a zombie, and the only thing i wanted to do was sleep, i was completly out of it, so everyday i have to lowermy dose but i still feel tired, it has helped me but only a little bit. I want to start adderall but i do not want the addictiveness.

26 Oct 2011 Thats exactly what I was worried about with Adderall. I thought it would make me act all crazy....ha I mean lets face it, when everyone hears Amphetamine we think of some crazy drug addict bouncing off the walls or something. Adderall has been a life saver. It has NEVER made me feel jittery or "active" or bouncing off walls. Actually quite the opposite in a wonderful way ha.....It has completely calmed my anxiety and racing thoughts. I am able to think clearly about things, which in turn I am able to do the things I WANT to do. Where as before taking adderall, my mind was racing and thinking so much I was literally exhausting myself so I never felt like doing ANYTHING and I felt tired alot and it was hard for me to do anything socially because of all the anxiety. Although I must admit of course I still struggle with the social thing, but that really is more psychological(and for that, which i cant believe im saying this cuz Im not into self help books, I recommend the book "The Healing Code" by Alexander Lloyd), but the adderall helps me to at least calmly think things through rationally so that I CAN work through my problems instead of getting so overwhelmed I shut down and cant do anything, ha make sense? Most things just seem to make sense now, I am able to understand so much. Adderall is awesome.

07 Oct 2011 Strattera honestly changed my life. I most likley would not have graduated from college had I not been perscribed to strattera. Strattera has helped me feel like a "normal" functioning person.

21 May 2011 I used strattera for month, i increased my dosage every weak and i took it once a day, I really didnt find any difference while taking this medication so i had my doctor swich my medication. If it works for anyone than thats great because its a Natural drug that is FDA approved.

27 Oct 2009 I think this drug was just pushed onto people because its a "non" stimulant, not because it worked. Iam 25 and have ADHD Inattentive. I already had a problem with anxiety,being tired, not being able to focus, and never having any motivation. Strattera just seemed to make everything worse! Although I must say it helps with anxiety...but I was so tired (constantly yawning ALL day) I didnt really care about anything. I hate feeling high (smoking pot) and this drug made me completely high. I felt.....its hard to describe....but I couldnt really focus or remember ANYTHING....it felt like everything was "fuzzy" and hazy. People would talk to me and I would just stare at them and couldnt for the life of me pay attention to anything they were saying.....and I totally didnt care which bugs me the most. I could have just sat in a chair and day dreamed all day. It also screwed up my menstrual cycle. Ive been off of it for 2 weeks and I am two weeks late (im not pregnant) which I have never been irregular, so I think this drug did more to my body than I realize which ticks me off. Please, if you are reading this....get more opinions about it before trying it. Doctors are pushed to sell this first before Adderall and Ritalin. And PLEASE do NOT stay on it if you start experiencing negative side effects. Ive heard some doctors will want you to stay on it for a few months before ruling it out. SCREW that. Thats a waste of my time. I was on it for a little over a month, and I know my body well enough to know it was horrible. My doctor started me on the sample pack which has 18mg,25mg,40mg & 60mg and then I was on 60mg after that.
