    Strattera for Adh syndrome

    Our son was prescribed Strattera at the age of 5 after suffering serious side effects after 6 weeks. Today we feel guilty about having to do this to the little one, but the pressure of the society and the hope of parents to help our children did the rest 🙁 The little one suffered from immense side effects that started slowly, he had constantly stomach ache, not hungry any more, had strong dark circles, nightmares every night from which he awoke screaming 3-4x in the evening, to hallucinations. Every day there were white sweat marks on his nightwear which we could not explain, he complained several times about chest pains, about rubber in the head and pain in the penis when he then also went to bed, and 2 days later behind the door, it was enough for us and we have n discontinued immediately. Our son was already clean and dry for 2 years! he was getting better and better from day one, and now we are blaming ourselves for ever having tried medication. We can only warn everyone, please do not give this medicine to your children.

    Side effects: Stomach pain; Anorexia

    Hello, I took Straterra for several years. During these years I had various side effects. In addition to anxiety, lack of appetite and heart pain, the worst was a stinging itch. I can only advise against consuming this medication unless it is in a phase where it is really necessary. I speak from experience I have been taking it for 5 years. In addition, after 5 years, the man has lived to be well and concentrated and it is difficult to get away from it again. lg

    Side effects: Anorexia

    Strattera for Ads / adh syndrome

    at 2014 ads were diagnosed (in adulthood). Previously, I had tried out the 10 different antidepressants because of a complete breakdown in 2011, as the depression was in the foreground. As such means I could not tolerate and was not viable at this time, because only comatose and completely impotent. So completely the opposite of what we wanted to achieve with it. At some point I gave it up and got through with LASEA (lavender capsules) (for me a really great over the counter) !! When I was reintegrated into working life, my therapist noticed a topic – concentration problems / organizational problems etc … and that since my childhood. She sent me to a specialist in Hamburg. We only tried it with Medikinet adult .. I did not notice my change, but my environmentI ran Emotionsamok! also the sneaking off was not funny. since I had already tried in advance the common antidepressants, which are conducive to lack of concentration, remained virtually just Strattera. Strattera is not long been prescribed, especially for adults it will probably only paid in recent years. I started with 40 mg. After about 2-3 weeks I could suddenly follow conversations without digressing, I could read a page piece without jumping or that was not to take what I’ve read. I was able to work accurately on prescriptions or manuals .. my drive left a lot to be desired as well as my organization and perseverance. Side effects about 2 months every night Dreams also nightmares (I almost never dreamed before), more teeth crunched so fit as a sneaker, I have been awake about every 2-3 hours, dizziness, sore throat, there constantly dry throat , Positive little hunger! if you were overweight like me. In January, I went to 60 mg, I’m now more organized, disciplined. The previous side effects were soon gone (ie after about 2.5 months). However, I have since then hot flashes always about 2 hours after taking. I hope that also disappears. All in all, even though I have a lot of prescriptions for these medications, after many years of recurring failure, I can finally take my life back in my hands and can trust myself and my brain more and more every day. It is certainly not a miracle cure – I thought also, if I take it, I go to Günther Jauch and clear first of the million – so it is unfortunately not. Without therapy (ergo / behavior) you should not do it.

    Strattera for Ads / adh syndrome

    I started with 40 mg once a day in the morning. The first 1-2 days I had no effect, but no side effect. Then there were only side effects: I was often dizzy / bad. Comparable to how you feel when you are getting seasick. In addition, I often had a headache / a feeling that my brain was overloaded, I was sweating very fast, had difficulty sleeping and orgasm problems. The side effects gradually subsided until they disappeared completely after about 1 month. The only thing left was that I sweat faster. After 1 month, I increased to 60 mg and during the weeks that followed, I noticed that I can follow conversations better and that I get stuck with reading, or that I do not have to read passages repeatedly. I also tried for a short time 80 mg and could still experience a slight improvement – but I’m down to 60 mg, because … Healthy are not yes, and I will these tablets very long, probably. forever, take. I, male, weigh ~ 80 kg at 1,77m. PS: I recommend Strattera in the morning, right after breakfast. On an empty stomach it makes me sick. After the meal: no problem. I also took them a few hours before going to bed: I can do it, I could sleep and in the morning I was very fit and awake (very unusual for me), but I think the effect is better if you take the pills in the morning.

    Strattera for Adh syndrome

    In my mid-30s and since my ADHD diagnosis half a year ago, I have taken 80 mg Strattera for 4 months. My blood pressure has since increased by about 10 points, my pulse by 5 to 10 pts. In the beginning I had tachycardia, which was reinforced with normal coffee consumption. That is less often now. I’m not sure if I can concentrate better with the drug. I have better and worse days. Now that I’ve had a stomach ache for weeks, today I decided to drop the drug on my own and see what happens. Because the side effects do not justify the benefit for me, precisely because I’m not sure about the benefit with me. So all in all, I can neither recommend nor vilify it.

    Side effects: Palpitations; Stomach pain

    Strattera for Adh syndrome

    My son 6 years got Strattera 9mg first and after 3 weeks we increased to 18mg. First he complained of nausea and abdominal pain. Then we gave the capsules in the evening, where he could sleep wonderfully. The last 2 weeks of the 18mg dose were catastrophic. He was enormously mood swaying, sometimes aggressive and constantly had anxiety. Moreover, he was very whiny and partly unresponsive. I have discontinued the drug and will not give it up so quickly. We are again doing therapies that also do him very well

    Strattera for Adh syndrome

    My son has taken Medikinet for several years because of his ADHD. This was an almost normal life possible. But because he has become increasingly depressive lately, the Medikinet has been discontinued as a possible trigger immediately. This went well for a few weeks until it became more and more aggressive, depressive, irritable and concentration was almost impossible. He was very desperate and did not know what was happening to him. Since Strattera should be particularly good at impulsivity, we tried it on the advice of a psychiatrist. After the first one to two weeks, I thought I noticed a slight improvement, but then ….. My son became more aggressive day by day, violent against himself and against others. He had extreme mood swings that changed from one to the other second. He was constantly on riot, has gepöbel, insulted, threatened. He was completely changed, like a stranger. It really scared us to experience him like this. That was also the reason why he dropped off Strattera himself. A devil stuff! Now he is being recruited by a really experienced doctor with Medikinet adult. The dosage is now based on his individual needs and not, as falsely sometimes happens, according to body weight!

    Side effects: Mood swings; Aggressiveness

    Strattera for Adh syndrome

    My son was diagnosed adhs when he was enrolled. He got encapsulated Medikinet Retard for almost 2 years and was then discontinued after 2 1/2 years because he was aggressively on strattera. After a few weeks, a short improvement ensued, which was also just as fast embraced by aggressive behavior towards everyone. School was very extreme his grades are so saggy and there were only complaints. now it’s time that he wants to kill himself and is only on riot … I hope he will help soon … we change the doctor because our mistake with this drug does not want to see and thinks it will improve again I would just have to stand with my child …. should I wait until he runs amog? No, that’s my child then just free choice of doctor and go …. maybe he helps another doctor ….

    Strattera for Ads / adh syndrome
