This is the first time in decades that I have felt comfortable and confident. I really appreciate Strattera for that. This is also the first time in many years that I _HAVEN'T_ been on a mood stabilizer. I originaly was diagnosed as being Bi-polar. My symptoms aren't totally in line with typically ADD, but the book "What does everyone else know that I don't" caused me to consider that I might be ADD. Mainly this was due to being so focused that you miss the social cues that later cause you interpersonal problems. My pdoc agrees that my original bipolar diagnosis (not his) was wrong. As to side effects: lots of itching, nausea, sleepy. But career-wise, I have progressed so much in the last four months -- everyone has commented on my new-found abilites and are now deferring to me in group projects.
