My 13 year old just started on Strattera after many unsuccessful tries on stimulants. He was off his medication for about 2 months, but asked to go back on as he's struggling in school. The first day he took the Strattera, he promptly complained of feeling dizzy and fell asleep. He waited about a week, and tried it again, but took it before bed. He is still complaining of feeling dizzy and tired during the day. It's not affecting his appetite which is great, and he reports feeling more focused already. I'm not sure how long to suggest that he stay on this to see if the side effects minimize. I'm scared that we're out of options and he still many years left of school.
