The headache is no worse than the normal ones I get. I'm not agitated or extremely nervous which he also said if I get that way I'm not add. I have meds for the headaches but it's new too so I didn't want to take two new meds at the same time. I'll prob take something tonight as the Concerta has worn off by now.
Thank you for your reply. I didn't understand him either when I read the side effects it was the same thing he told me if I had meant I wasn't add. I'm the one that suggested taking meds for this as I saw the ad for Stratera & wanted to try that. I have known for quite a while I was ADD just by the symptoms. We didn't call it that when I was young tho I was just considered a nervous child. But as I get older I am getting worse so thot I'd ask my trist if I could try it to see if it would help me keep my mind straight & calm. He said that was fine with him. I also suffer from anxiety & he did warn me I might get more anxious on this med. He didn't want to try me out on Stratera 1st cause it is slow acting & may take up to 4 weeks to work. He said for me to take the Concerta cause I would know within the 1st 2 days if it would work for me or not. I am more focused today & have accomplished quit a bit without burning up supper.
