Reply to below post:
I experienced the same thing. It was a bit alarming because I was so used to always thinking about something (my mind always moving from one thought to another). I told my doctor about it and he said it is normal. When you live a lifetime with your brain in hyper mode it's difficult at first to adjust to experiencing life at normal speed. Also, now that I am at the 9th or 10th week I have found that my body has adjusted to the medicine and that initial response has balanced out, meaning that I don't feel as sedated as when I first began the Strattera, yet I still have more calm in my life now. I am able to relax when I want to and not have the urge to always be moving. It hasn't cured all of my ADD symptoms but I do function and feel better. There has been an overall improvement in many areas, so I am pleased with the results. Around the 6th week is when I noticed that most of the side effects of the medicine went away. All I can say is be patient with the Strattera.

> Today, took my 40 mgs. Felt totally f'in' depressed. Brain feels slower than usual. The work day, in which I would normally be playing mind games and fooling around to get through the day, went by quickly -- but I feel 'too' calm. Not like myself. I think I may prefer being ADD and having fun to being calm and sad like this.
> Also, got a major HEADACHE! Any worries?
