Strattera is a drug. As such, it will affect different people, in different ways.

Consult your physican, and see if a different dosage, or different drug would give you more favorable results.

An antidepressent, or other treatment may ease your anxiety. Avoiding refined carbohydrates will help stabilize your moods if you are either Hyper- or Hypo-glycemic.

Do aerobic exercise, and drink plenty of water, to help your body expel stress hormones, and fatigue your muscles, so that your body can sleep better.

A behavioral psychologist, or spiritual counselor, may help you address mental or spiritual sources of your anxiety.

You may also investigate having a Sleep Study done. They take about four hours, during which you are electronically monitored and observed.

This evaluation can determine if you have ailments like sleep apnea, which causes a shortage of oxygen, which can send your body into a panic/survival mode.

What are the side effects after going off of Strattera?

My 11 year old daughter had been taking Strattera for a little more than 3 years. About 5 weeks ago she decided on her own, without discussing it with her father and I, to stop cold turkey taking her meds. She was taking 60mg of Strattera and a melatonin every night before bed. She was taking it at night because of the stomach aches. they were just to much to handle during the morning at school. After a few weeks of not taking the meds she confided in my Mother that she was not taking the Strattera anymore. I couldn't really tell any major differences. The only big difference was her insatiable appetite In the about 5 or 6 weeks she has been off the Strattera(taking it for ADHD) she has gained 10lbs. She says she is now sleeping through the night. Falling asleep quite easily too. It used to take her more than an hour even with the Melatonin.

What are causes of night terrors in kids?

There is no exact science behind night terrors. The definition of night terrors is typically considered the extreme and amplified sequence of nightmares which cause trauma to the body and mind. Night terrors can occur from emotional and mental health problems arising from recent trauma in a persons life, even children. It is not the ONLY cause of night terrors. Some people will produce more of a certain type of chemical which helps regulate sleep and it can cause extreme nightmares (night terrors) It may also be a product of wild imaginations. Parents should also watch the content their children are viewing on television prior to their sleep to check for patterns. It is typically advised that a person should not watch television 1-2 hours prior to going to sleep as this interferes with REM sleep which may be another cause of night terrors
