This question has also been asked and answered here: Strattera vs Adderall: What is the difference?
I tried Strattera (after 10 years on Dexedrine which worked well) and it was an absolute disaster. It made me tired all the time and I gained 30lbs and was only taking it for one month.
I'd recommend to your daughter that she go back to her doctor and tell him/her Straterra isn't working. If the doctor refuses to prescribe stimulants, then the doctor is an idiot, and she should find a better one. Unless she has a history of addiction/abuse of drugs, there is no reason why stimulants shouldn't be an option for her to try.
