Well this morning I only took my 40 mg pill. I think that is all I will take for today, and call my pdoc. If she still says I should continue w/ the 80, then maybe I should get a 2nd opinion. I actually started out on 40, then on my 3rd day, I started taking 80. Thanks for all of the input. I was diagnosed as being bipolar in the past, I tried many mood stabilizers, including depakote and lithium, but had awful side effects. My new pdoc believes I have ADHD. I have an 8 yr old son who was diagnosed with it almost 3 yrs ago. He has tried Dex, adderall, and now on Ritalin, which seems to be working best for him. But "best" does not mean I'm pleased with it. He has several tics, aggitation, and severe bouts of depression. He is on Wellbutrin for the depression, and clonodine as needed for sleep. I would really like to try Strattera on him, but I wanted to see if I had any probs with it first. I want to get him off of the stimulants. Well I'm getting ready to call my doc, once again, thanks. Oh, one more thing, a little off the subject, but has anyone read books by Dr. Amen? I recently read his book about the 6 different types of ADD. It's I book I would recommend to everyone!!!
