Best Answer

My son was on Strattera for quite some time and he has stomach discomfort and nausea the whole time. It didn't matter if he took it with or without milk his stomach still got upset. It also caused him to cry a lot and be VERY emotional. We switch him to Concerta and the side effects seem to be very minimal. (he's been on it for over a year now) If the symptoms continue I would consider having your doctor change the medication!! Hope that was some help!!

Does Strattera give you the chills?

Answer: Getting chills from Strattera is not a normal side effect, and it is more of a flu-like symptom which is not a good thing really. While taking Strattera if you get flu-like symptoms (such as the chills, fever, or aches) this can be an indication of liver damage. Strattera has been shown to cause liver damage in rare cases. You should talk to your doctor especially if you have any one of the following other symptoms: uncontrollable itching, dark colored urine, yellowing of the skin or the eyes (jaundice), upper right-side abdominal tenderness or discomfort.

Why do you have a stomach ache after you take a shower?

It could be caused by water vapor filling up the stomach. If it's a long shower the increase in volume could be stretching your stomach to the point of causing discomfort. Also, if the shower is with hot water this effect would be amplified since the equation PV = nRT says the hotter the vapor the more pressure it will exert on the walls of a container (like your stomach).

Are nightmares a common side effect of Strattera?

My son, age seven, began having nightmares shortly after starting Strattera. The nightmares continued every night until we switched him to Adderall. He has not had one nightmare in the three months on the new medication. The negative side effects were very bad for my son on Strattera. Another answer! I am 21 and had nighmares, HORRIBLE nightmares, on Straterra, I didn't have a good nights rest nearly the whole time while on Strattera, I know this is nasty but I also had diareeha all the time while on this medicine. My doctor told me that if I had any bad side effects, just stop taking the medication since he had started me on a low dose. So I did and I can sleep without waking up remembering horrible things from my dreams and the upset stomach is no longer upset!

Liver damage did not emerge as a Strattera side effect during short-term Strattera clinical trials of 6,000 patients. However, Straterra has now been on the market for several years. The longer time and larger pool of people taking the drug allowed a Strattera liver damage side effect to present itself in a small number of people taking Strattera. The new package warning indicates that Strattera should be discontinued in patients who developed jaundice (yellowing of the skin or whites of the eyes) or laboratory evidence of liver damage. Signs and symptoms of liver damage include: _ Itchy skin _ Jaundice _ Dark urine _ Abdominal tenderness on the upper right side _ Unexplained "flu-like" symptoms
