I am a young senior with ADHD. My doctor recently started me on Strattera, which I take in the morning, and right away I started having problems getting to sleep at night [I am posting this question at 4:30 AM]. Will this problem go away as my body becomes used to this medication? I started with a sample pack, the initial dosage is 18 mg, and my doctor wants me to increase over time to 80 mg.

I have been taking Clonidine (.2 mg) at bedtime for quite some time, because I wiggle a lot, and this was working until I started taking Strattera. I also had been taking flexeral at night, and the combination of the 2 meds helped me get to sleep.
