Stratera in Aspergers
Is there anyone out there who has a child with Aspergers and who is currently on Stratera? My son is 12 and was diagnosed with Aspergers when he was in the 1st grade. Up until last year, he had an inclusion aide, which helped him to focus, etc. This year, since he is in middle school, he does not have an inclusion aide. He received all As and Bs this quarter, but his teacher complains that he has a hard time paying attention in class, remembering to write down his assignments in his notebook without having to be reminded by someone and forgetting some items at school that he needs for home. He also exhibits some issues with anxiety and perseverates (keeps thinking about it and will not let it go even after someone has tried to reason with him). Because of all of this, his pediatrician has recommended that we consider putting him on Stratera. I searched on the web for info, but I cannot find anything relating to anyone with Aspergers. The only thing that pops up is ADD/ADHD. The doctor does not think that he has ADD or ADHD, but he just needs a little help with focusing and his anxiety issues. Does anyone have any suggestions? Is there anyone out there who has a child with Aspergers on Stratera. I am looking for any info that you can give. What are the side effects? How is it working? Sorry this is so long!!!
