What is Strawberry Condoms?
My 7 yr old son has been on Strattera for about 6 weeks now, and for about the past 3-4 weeks he has had bouts of anger, violence, hitting and screaming I can only assume it is the medicine, if there is anyone else who has experienced this, I would really like to hear their story.
I could not keep from smiling while random thoughts shot through my head. This effect slowly reduced itself over the next few days but was very peculiar indeed. Besides slight stomach discomfort, the only other side effect that I see as serious is Strattera inducing a very sleepy state. I see this as a problem for kids that would be starting Strattera during the school year. My son started a beginning dose of Strattera today. He broke out in a rash around his forehead and ear He was very listless and tired.
At first if, we gave it with milk, she might be OK but as time went on, she vomited daily.

How should I take Strawberry Condoms?
If you have questions or concerns, please discuss them with your health care provider. Since most antidepressants work by increasing the levels of brain messenger chemicals neurotransmitterssuch as norepinephrine, serotonin, and dopamine, it makes sense that they might have effects similar to other ADHD stimulant and nonstimulant treatments that appear to work by similar mechanisms.
Antidepressant treatment can have a small effect on attention span as well as impulse control, hyperactivity, and aggressiveness. Children and adolescents treated with antidepressants are often more willing to take direction and may be less disruptive. Antidepressants have the advantage of a low potential for abuse, and there is no evidence that they suppress growth or contribute to significant weight loss.
Monoamine oxidase inhibitors can cause a wide variety of side effects, including dangerously increased blood pressure when combined with certain foods or medications.

Seizures: Seizures are a potential risk with atomoxetine. Growth and development: Growth and development should be monitored in children and adolescents during treatment with atomoxetine.
New-onset or worsening of Comorbid Depression, Anxiety and Tics: In a controlled study of paediatric patients with ADHD and comorbid chronic motor tics or Tourette's Disorder, atomoxetine-treated patients did not experience worsening of tics compared to placebo-treated patients.

Atomoxetine has been noted to precipitate hypomania in people with a bipolar disposition. I love it, after trying several different stimulants in a row this has been a dream. No side effects, that I know of and I feel so.
So it took one month for me to "feel" it. And the feeling is not BAM in your face like a stimulant, but it is gradual. I didn't even notice it until right now when I realized that in the last two days I did this.
For me, it took over a month for it to have noticeable effects and still had to have the dosage uped to 80 mg.
