Hang in there with the Strattera. It takes time, but it's worth it. My 11-year son vascilated between irritable and goofy the first two weeks on 25mg; he was very active at times, and at other times, very tired.

I feel we've come out the other side of this thing. He's been very happy and approachable for the past three days. And although he'll have an occasional lapse of judgement and do something totally impulsive, it's easy to reason with him. He is no longer on a mad cycle of ups and downs with the Adderall, and we're no longer held hostage by the clock. He's eating good and sleeping. Mornings at our house are actually a pleasure and the days are pretty dang good too.

So, if you're still phasing into this drug, take a deep breath and mark the days on your calendar. I'd say three weeks is a pretty good time frame to shoot for. Lock yourself in the basement if you have to, but give yourself time to know what this drug can do for you. I hope it will be as worthwhile for you as it has been, thus far, for us. I'll post any changes.
