Re: ADD meds -

Was diagnosed classic ADHD one month ago and suggested to take Strattera. I'm struggling to get the dosage right...started with 40 mg for three days then up to 80 mg which felt really bad. Over the past two weeks have split the doses into one around 7 am, the other around 1 pm and that's working pretty well. My doc suggested I start pushing them closer together and might reach a point of being able to take 80 mg in one dose. Today was 8 am and 11:30 and so good.

The 'cloud of chos' I've been carrying around in my brain my whole life seems to have dissipated. On a scale of 1-10, I would rate around 7-8, which would be pretty significant improvement. I seem to be more focused, with less tangents in conversation. I'm able to sit at my desk for longer periods of time, without traveling through the office with various excuses (bathroom, coffee, visits etc). I am down to one legal pad of to dos...rather than a stack of notes and multiple legal pads going. I've cleared files that I seemed incapable of removing prior to meds. Mostly threw things away.

Anyway...will keep you posted, but we may be on to something here.
