I’ve been put on Straterra (?) while I wait for a neuropsychologist appointment to asses ADHD. Has anyone else been on this before? Did you see some improvement in focus?

      It slightly improved my focus, but it also made me extremely heat intolerant to the point where working by the oven would make me extremely dizzy (I was a line cook back then) and I’d have to take breaks daily just to deal with it. Stimulants are so much more helpful for me focus wise than strattera was

      I've been on it for a couple years and just raised my dose. It works okay for me, but I still also have to put in some effort to be self disciplined and organized. The only side effect I've noticed (which may be from another medication I'm on, not sure) is some sexual dysfunction.

      Helloooo. I've not been on it long enough to help the adhd (less than a week, and it can take up to a month or two to see full improvement) but it's helped my anxiety a bit! Also if you get side effects they suck. But mine are almost gone now (: eat before you take your pills!! If you get side effects you won't want to after.
