Our difficult child had an outburst tonight of mass proportions. We haven't seen one of these since he started Strattera. It lasted 2 hours. He just kept being mean no matter how many times I told him he needed to stop. It was as if he just wanted to be mean, and see how mean he could get. I tried not to react to it all, but that's really hard. I know there are many of you who have problems with Strattera. I guess my real question is have any of you had Strattera work in the beginning and then just have it start going backward? Our doctor recently recommended putting him on Trileptal, but hasn't diagnosis BiPolar (BP). I know it's recommeded to get off the Strattera before starting that, but I was wondering what the consensus on that drug is. Thanks all.
