My son was on strattera for 9 days. Althought it helped him with his "wiggles" that the school was bothered by, he became angry and raged at night and early morning. It was horrible. We lost our sweet, sensitive child for those 9 days.
The side effects he experienced on 18 mg:
anger and rage
no increased tics
We did not have a choice but to take him off. The side-effects outweighed the benefits. After a week, it was all out of his system. The first day off the meds was a hard day and lots of movement, but now he is happy and back to normal.
