Re: started strattera today, side effect already?

Our 9-year-old started Strattera a few days ago after having higher and higher anxiety levels on Methylphenidate, and after a bit of tiredness the first day or two seems to be much much happier. She seems to have had the same reaction to the amphetamine that I am having with Vyvanse, which is an increase in anxiety. In her case it was making her withdrawn, anxious, unhappy, and even caused her to act out by yelling at a teacher, act more defiantly than normal at home, withdrawing from friends, and behaving like a cat or dog when she was very anxious. She was also exhibiting some OCD to cope with the anxiety. So we are hopeful that switching from a stimulant med is the first step in the right direction. She seems more normal, happy, and together now.

We were even considering an SSRI like Prozac or the like before we made the switch to Strattera, but early returns show that that might not even be necessary.
