My doctor, who also has ADD, told me that when you start feeling sleepy with Strattera, it means you need to back down on the dose. It is a type of stimulant and for someone with ADD a stimulant has the opposite effect, which is to actually slow you down so you can focus, have increased energy, etc. So, if you are taking too much, it will begin to make you tired. If you're doctor started you on 80mg it sounds like he doesn't have much experience with the medicine because all of these medicines should be started at a low dose and then work your way up.

Have you gone to the strattera.com website? That has some really good info not only about the medicine, but adult ADD.
