Juanita I would suggest that maybe you can give your child vitamins with his medicine. My 5 year old son takes a Sesame Street vitamin with his Adderall in the morning. It acts as a reward to him. They are very tasty to him as well.It got easier with us after we started using the vitamins. So maybe you can take a Cartoon Character that he/she obsesses about and get them in a vitamin

Can Strattera help with depression?

I have had dysthimia (I think that is the right spelling) which is a difficult to treat, but not severe, depression. I have been on Strattera for 10 days, and I feel that the depression is lifting some. But there are other side effects that make it debatable if it is worth it. Strattera was originally intended to be a new antidepressant drug, but in clinical trials, no benefits could be proven. Since Strattera works to inhibit the reuptake of norepinephrine, the manufacturer ran trials on the effectiveness of Strattera for ADHD and was subsequently approved (Information is from Wikipedia), making Strattera the first non-stimulant ADHD medication on the market. If your doctor is giving you Strattera for depression, you might want to request a new drug, as that is basically an off-label use since Strattera is for ADHD and has been shown in clinical trials to NOT be effective for depression.
