[QUOTE=KissAmeGal;2858374]hiya exhausted mum.....LOL like that name...i know it so well.
my son was on Strattera for about a month and 1/2, it really didn't do anything for him. it seemed to at first, but as time went on, it quit working for him. he is now on Abilify. But....just because it doesn't work for others, doesn't mean it won't work for him. The good thing about Strattera is that it is not a stimulant, as the other ADHD meds are.
Also, i just starting him on the Omega 3 Fish Oil. i've read in other posts that it does work for quite a few that i have heard. so i'm giving that a shot. It's natural, so it can't hurt.
Good Luck & Take care
thanks for your advice, i have started strattera today so hopefully fingers crossed we will see some improvement. its nice to know that you are not the only one in this situation sometimes, as none of my friends have a child with adhd and are a little bit ignorant of my situation. i have only just joined this health forum site so hopefully you will get to read this.
