Does any one know have a family member that takes STRATTERA 36mg. My son is 7 years old the Dr. started him on it 5 days ago. Sinces he has taken the med. he is very angry, yelling, crying a lot. I've had to hold him down cuase he wanted to hit his baby sister. He was never like this. He would get mad but it was normal behavior. I just can't see how this med is going to help him focus and do better in school. I think it's made him to a different child
I just need some support on this med....does it work? If anyone knows anything please let me know.
Thanks...I'm new at this so... Please help.
Try another like ridilin, my son is 6 years and in grade one works great he takes it twice a day lowers appitite but I tell him to eat even if not hungry. He sleeps great at night. Ridilin has been around a long time longer then these other could be as simple as the wrong med try other to fing out its worth it .
did your doctor put your son on 36 mg right from the start?
that could be causing his actions
my son is on strattera about a year ago
we seen a neurologist she
gave him 10 mg 18mg 24mg (each one a 7 day sample)
the doctor told us to give the medicine at night for the first few weeks so it wouldnt up set his stomach
he is now on 40 mg
we feel since he has grown he might need to up his medication
i hope this helps
definately talk to your childs doctor right away
here's one for you, stop giving your child DRUGS, especially if it isn't working! The things you describe is called, "JELIOUSLY", OR SIDE EFFECTS FROM DRUGS.
read this book, Nautual cures, what they don't want you to know about.
