Nice to see the Straterra conversation continuing. I'm on day 7 here at 25 mg. per day...with the exception of yesterday, where I took a second 25 mg. in the afternoon. That proved much too much in terms of discomfort re: dryness. It's bad enough here with this cold dry winter let alone adding this medication's drawback to the mix. My throat my mouth, my nasal passages -- miserable. Wish there was a simple way to counteract this. Humidifiers, drinking lots of water, lotion, etc. doesn't seem to help. On the plus side, the burning sensation from dry eyes has subsided so perhaps the rest of this will let up as well.

On the upside, I'm very impressed with what this last week has brought in terms of improvement on symptoms. Absolutely more calm, more methodical.I'm a photographer for a newspaper but also cover key positions when folks take vacations. This week I covered for the production manager. Lots of paperwork, lots of details. lots of stress. It went incredibly smoothly - much more than times past. Less effort to accomplish more. I'm also feeling less impulsive, less compelled to finish people's sentences or jump in and interupt. A pleasant change for those around me, no doubt!

I figure I'm a good test case for you guys as I've never taken meds for depression, ADD or anything else. Is there a change? Absolutely. I'm sleeping better, less likely to hit the usual wall in the afternoon where I want a nap and am generally more orderly and thoughtful in how I approach tasks. .

Thanks to those that have been keeping the rest of us informed....
