250rok I'm way to tired to be arguing about this. ill be honest and say i tend to have biased view against how doctors prescribe add drugs but heres a quick copy paste just from wikipedia on the side effects. i never found strattera to actually do anything. op if you stopped taking strattera do you honestly think your school work would be effected? as terrible as they are at least the use of the stimulant drugs actually has some merit with add assuming you don't over do them. (strattera is the non-stimulant alternative add pharmaceutical)

I'm not saying that simply looking this up gives you the training of a doctor, but are all of those side effects really worth it for a drug whose effectiveness is quite debatable? I'm far from being the only one who did not find benefits from using strattera.
While I agree on the fact that you should try to take ADD meds as little as possible, you completely missed the point. Literally all he said was that Strattera is the least bad out of the ADD meds.
Not really sure why you posted that list of side effects? It really didn't prove anything because nobody was saying it didn't have side effects. Every drug has side effects.
Steeze.....what else is there??
