I have ADHD that’s been driving me nuts lately. I can’t start a project and actually finish it. I’m always impatient and bored. I am constantly distracted and side tasked. I tried adderall and vyvance, but had bad nausea and irritability. Finally got a rx for Straterra today! Has anyone had a similar experience, and how does the straterra work for you? 😊

      Strattera caused severe daytime sleepiness for me but I know others who've had success with it. I hope it works for you. If I don't set a visual timer -- the ones that have a dial and you can see the "pie" shrinking -- I don't finish projects either. The timer creates a challenge or gamifies the project. I also have to take frequent breaks with planned physical activities. If a break is something relaxing that I can get sucked into, like watching videos, forgettaboutit! I usually work <30, break for 10-15. It's either that or get absolutely nothing accomplished

      I have the same experience. I’ve just started strattera. It feels better than the others, I just need my stomach to get used to it
