Well I haven't posted for awhile so here's the latest update. I'm still on 80 mg. I went back to takign it twice a day for awhile to try to alleviate the afternoon tiredness. It helped but I got sick of having to remember so I just recently went back to once a day and the tiredness is gone. I've been on Strattera since February. The road to here was definitely rocky but worthwhile.
One of the main reasons I wanted to go on Strattera was to be able to take Excederin and Sudafed again since those two don't mix well with stimulants. Amazingly I haven't been sick since going on it until now. So Sunday was the big test. When taking Sudafed with Concerta/Ritalin I felt like I was losing my mind and was on massive amounts of speed. I have nothing like that now with Strattera. I feel maybe a little more spacey than normal but nothing major. I'm so thrilled to be able to take it again! Just thought I'd let you all know!
