Lasagne,

Thanks for checking up on me. I'm an ADD - Inattentive Type, so my problem is different from Hyperactives. I cannot focus and get distracted easily.

I'm having the same "cannot relax" problem as you!! I totally feel your annoyance at the sleepiness compounded with being tense!

I'm having the similar problem, I take Strattera at night to help me fall asleep.

However what I run into is ... my mind is racing like 100 mph, I'm obsessively thinking about "things I forgot to do" ... "what I should have said to someone" ... "what I need to get done" ... etc etc ....

My body is calling to me to sleep.
My mind is calling to me to get up and get stuff done!

Is your "inability to relax" caused by your thoughts as well??

> Just this last week I have been experiencing on and off wakefulness during the night with the Strattera. At first the medication made me so sleepy during the day, then I switched to taking it at 7 p.m. and it helped me to relax and have a good nights sleep. Now I am having a difficult time relaxing even though the Strattera calms my brain down and I want to sleep. Plus, I have been getting up 3-4 times a night to go to the bathroom. When I wake up in the morning my back feels all wrenched even though I have a very nice mattress that wasn't giving me problems before. It's driving me crazy. I even have a hard time relaxing during my daily naps. Yesterday I tried taking a shorter nap to see if it would help, but instead I felt unrested and then when it was time to go to bed I still couldn't relax and it seems like I woke up every couple of hours. I am hoping that this passes because I was really loving it when I would just melt into my bed and sleep so well.
