The Day in the Life of a Dupe

I was diagnosed with ADHD on Monday, and today I started Day 3 of my life on Strattera.

I'm not quite as drowsy as I was yesterday after taking it, but maybe it was the sleep I got. Maybe it's my body adjusting. I'm not really sure and I haven't been on it long enough to know or really to see an effect.

I've heard the side effects and none of them are very pretty. Let's take a look at them, shall we?

Common Reactions to Strattera in children and teenagers

  • Mood swings
  • Tiredness
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Decreased appetite
  • Upset stomach

Common side effects to Strattera in adults

I've only had the tiredness so far, and I'm not too far from teenage life to be considered susceptible to that, I bet. God knows I don't LOOK older than a teenager (a young one. Such is life.).

I'll try to keep this as a testament to how it works, how I feel on it, and if I think it's working. Consider this my ADHD blog.
