Re: Strattera drowsiness
try taking it in the evening before bed-about an hour before. I also have a hard time going to sleep (it's 1:30am). For me the insomnia is a symtom of my bipolar type2, also it appears to be a side effect of the adderall I recently started taking, but in time I know this will go away. my son had the same problem with sleep and it went away with time. Has your doctor thought you might be bipolar? type 2 is a very mild form and can coexist with adult add. I am also hyper and have always found it hard to sleep because when I lay down at night to go to bed I can't seem to clear my mind and go to sleep. I am prescribed 5mg of regular ambien which works great and I only take it from time to time, but usually when I find out that I'm going to be up half the night it's too late to take the ambien because it has to be taken when you know you'll get at least 8 hours of sleep-which means I'd have to take it before I even know if I'll need it that night. I have to get up at 6:30am to get my son off to school so I need to make sure I have enough sleep when taking to ambien. If you were just recently diagnosed, it may take a couple of different doses or cominations of meds to find out which one works right for you-don't give up, it sound like your on the right track.
