Thanks Larynxa!

“So get yourself a journal, so you can note down what you’re taking, and how much of it, and how you’re feeling. This will be a big help in determining if you’re on the right medicine(s) at the right dose(s).”

I’m going to do that – great idea. I remember when I first took SSRIs and how crummy they made me feel (GI disturbances, light-headedness, etc…) but that receded after a couple of weeks. I’m figuring an NRI like Strattera may do the same thing. Thanks for reminding me that each med is tailored to an individual, or at least that each individual may respond differently. Most of the negative reviews have been from folks who appear to have had negative side effects in the first few weeks. I’m pretty patient (after all, I’m 39 and can stand to wait a little longer for medication to help me out).

Cheers,

Mungo
