I was just wondering how much Strattera you are on. I have been on only 10mg of strattera for about 5 days now and so far I have really noticed a big improvement not so much on my focus, but on my sleep wake cycle. I used to sleep excessibly, almost 12-13 hours a day with naps and still feel totally tired throughout the day. Now I can finally wake up after a more normal 7-9 hours and feel refreshed and totally awake after only a half an hour. So far I have only felt slight improvements in my concentration level, but I think that might take a while to really kick in. But Strattera is definitely doing somethings that Ritalin never did for me. So far it has Lessened my anxiety, and depression that I've had for the past 2 years. It also totally unexpectedly helped with my heart palpitations that even when off ritalin occured. I can't really figure that one out. I havent had any bad sideffects so far.
I think whoever told you about Strattera effecting the Daily Biorythms might have been pretty accurate, at least in my case.
Any way you say you were on all the ADD drugs, what about Wellbutrin or Provigil. What was your experience with those if you were on any of them.
