i started my daughter (6yrs) on strattera about a week ago at 18mg. she takes it at night cuz she gets tired from it. friday night she started her 25mg and at first i didn't like it too much. she seemed withdrawn, like in her own little world. but that was her first 25mg dose, so i just waited to see how she acted the next day. the next day she was wonderful. meghan likes to argue with everyone. she also like to pick fights with her cousin who is 5yrs old. this weekend there was no argueing and no fighting. i asked her how did she like her medicine and she said "i like it, it calms me" yippie!!!! she likes it, even better. when i picked her up from grandma's house there was no trouble getting her to come home. that is a miracle. she isn't having any side effects either. just tiredness, so we give it to her at night. but i just wanted to tell you all that this was working for her. and keep your fingers crossed that it continues to do so.
