Comment:
I am ADHD and never felt so sick and tired, literally, in my life. Strattera isn't helping my deficiency with my attention. It does help me be sleepy and want to vomit everyday. I told my DR that I am used to Adderall and Adderall worked completely! I hope he prescribes me Adderall instead of this Strattera stuff.
