I know tiredness is common with strattera, but I just get it suddenly for short periods. Like I can be lying on my couch, then all of the sudden it feels like my blood pressure goes up and this intense wave of tiredness hits me. Then I feel like I'm basically knocked out in a deep sleep for about 20 minutes. Then I wake up and feel fine. And some days it doesn't even happen.

This happens to me as well. Are you generally sensitive to medications? or everything for that matter?

Yup I get it is well.. I am sensitive to meds... something to do with the way I metabolize the meds... Also doc thinks I absorb more of the meds than most... but it doesnt happen every day... Also gone off my food :(

I've typically been sensitive at first, but then adapt quickly. However, I haven't really developed much of a tolerance to strattera.

Stratterra can take a solid 6 weeks to really get going. In the meantime it would be good to call your doctor and allow time for some cat naps.

Strattera blows. Take a stimulant.
