Hi Disney;

Straterra and Adderall are not available here in Canada where I live. My sons psychiatrist felt that since he has no hyperactivity with his ADD (He's ADD-inattentive) and is suffering from depression and anxiety that Wellbutrin would be the better choice of med for him. (He suggested either the Wellbutrin or Celexa). He will take his meds at 7 am and again at 2 pm. He will be titrating up and it will be 3 weeks before he's on the maximum dosage that is being prescribed. He was due to start his meds today but asked if we could put it off till Friday. I agreed, I think he's nervous about starting it and doesn't want to start it and go to school the same day. He has a long weekend coming up. My concern is that it may exacerbate his anxiety. Anyhow, good luck to you and your son, keep posting, I'd like to hear how things are going.
