Re: What has been your experience with strattera?

Unfortuntaely, it raised my blood pressure (even by itself) more than stimulants ever did, and it made a tic-like/compulsive behavior problem worse. Because of that and some other unrelated (non-medical) reasons, I ended up discontinuing it.
I also have a tic-like/compulsive behavior problem that I think is due in part at least to anxiety/stress, which I feel like the strattera could possibly be affecting and making nervousness etc. worse. I've never taken concerta.
