Day 3 -- Before Taking

Much better quality of sleep last night! I don't know what was going on 24 hours ago, but I slept very soundly this time. Some VERY loud birdies woke me up this morning, because we've just started opening the windows in the warmer weather.

Also, just now I woke up with the same kind of clarity and enthusiasm as I did yesterday. I even quickly sorted all my laundry and popped a load in the washer. That's something that usually takes me DAYS to decide to do, well past the time when I need to do it! This was a simple decision to do something and I did it -- none of that emotional back-and-forth of whether I really want to or not. Five minutes and it was done. On to the next activity.

I don't know at this point if this is the drug working on me, or if this is me pushing for a positive outcome and I'm excited at the newness of it. The stimulation of the new and different always "gets me going." But I really do feel different... not dragging and very clear-headed.

My doctor said that I should aim for a dosage of 120mg and I'm only at 40mg now. Does anyone know if Straterra is a drug where you "need" to increase the dosage after awhile in order to keep the good effect? Does your body start tolerating it?

I'm going to take today's dose now.... I wish all of you the best!
