Hi all,

It's been a long time since I've posted. Summer has been pretty exhausting!! Anyway, we've switched from Adderall to Straterra over the last few weeks, and I'm really not seeing much difference. Well, I take that back. The hyperactivity is a little better, but ds is still irritable and just as defiant (he's odd too). Does it take longer than 2 weeks to kick in? I see the doc tomorrow, but I was wondering how you moms feel about the results of this medication. Thanks! Dana

I've been told to give it 2 weeks to notice a difference, however most doctors say a month. I would give it a full month. If it's still not better then I'd call the dr to see if maybe your DS needs a higher dosage.

Sorry, I didn't see this post! That makes for a good plan. Egnore my above post!
