Hi Everyone! My 8 yr old son who has Aspergers just started on Strattera 3 weeks ago. We are having a tough time getting him to take it. How do you all give it to your kids if they can't swallow. We have tried to open the capsule, but have a tough time getting the powder out of it. We've tried soaking it in juice and then putting it in applesauce, but he tends to bite it.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. It seems to be doing a good job. Not sure about how good is level of focus is in the afternoon at school, but he is interacting more with his peers and is less whiney.
