Strattera quit working so Dr. upped the dose?

Hi, I am taking Strattera and went through the starter pack for a month, then on to 80 mg. for another six weeks. The effects had been declining for the past three weeks then dropped completely Pres. day weekend. The Dr. upped the dose to 120 mg. today.
Has this happened to anyone else? Why would the dose be upped when it quit working? Did the increased dosing help? My thought is that this will only happen again here in another month or two.
I'm new to all this and the effect/non-effect cycle is already hurting my school work massively. Any suggestions are appreciated.
