Hi, feeling drowsy is listed in the side effects of Strattera - also a tingling sensation has been reported. As you are new to this medication, it is quite normal for you to take a while to adjust to it, and in the mean time, it is quite normal to have some symptoms, such as you have mentioned. Be aware of your mood whilst on Strattera, if you start to feel a low mood, or depression, it is important to inform your doctor asap. This could be exacerbated by the tiredness and nightmares. Just wanted to mention that. I am not sure of the time frame when it comes to the induction period of this medication, so if the drowsiness continues passed a week or two, just check with you doctor or pharmacist as to if this is normal. Hopefully the tingling will subside also when your body gets used to this new medication.
