I have looked it up on the internet and found some info but I was hoping I could get some insight from those of you that have used it. I read somewhere that when Straterra is started the child should also continue the other med ritalin or whatever for the first few days and then go off but his ped. did not tell me to do that she just gave us 4 days of the 18mg dose and then a month of the next higher dose, is this normal? Also should I be aware of any side effects he may experience during the switch? I read somewhere that Staterra can make the kids extremely tired the first few days they take it.
I want to start him on it this weekend so any info you guys have would be great.
Thanks in advance,
