3 Stages of Strattera?

I am on 25 mg on day 7 right now, and although I have gotten surprising results so far, the side effects are still somewhat annoying (Although they are slowly getting better)

I've noticed 3 distinct stages after I take the pill in the morning around 7. From about 7:15 to 9:30 I am in NA rush mode, and get rather pleasant tingles on my skin, but often a strong sense of vertigo. I am very focused on my work, and do everything methodically and slowly in this state

From about 9:30 to 12 I'm in 'Oh my god is this going to give me a heart attack' mode. Pulse is high, vertigo is replaced by a splitting sinus headache and hot flashes, as well as a seemingly irregular heartbeat. I say seemingly, as I can feel it beating oddly in my chest, but when I hold my hand over it, it is beating normally, albeit a bit stronger. Around this time I start to get rushes of anxiety, but I can tell that it is simply my NA pumping (Flight or fight anxiety is the best way to describe it)

Maybe that has to do with food, since lunch is at 12, but after 12 I feel for lack of a better word...normal. Concentration is fine, I'm not tired, and everything is just great. My ideas flow better, my anxiety is almost non existent, and an odd feeling of Zen seems to descend on me. I donít feel any irregular heartbeats either, which is a relief.

I'm taking is slowly just because of the heart problems (I was supposed to be up to 40 mg by now, but I am waiting until Sunday to do that now. Do these ever go completely away?
