I was subscribed Strattera for ADD due to a major sensitivity to stimulants. It seems to give me many of the same feelings as stimulant meds. I have dry mouth and bad headaches since taking this med.
Strattera does have stimulant effects. That would be due to the chemical action required in the brain in order to help people with ADD and ADHD. Due to its chemical composition it isn't classified as a stimulant. The headaches are a common side effect. You might want to tell the prescribing Dr. about the severity of your headaches.
