Strattera Side Effects

What should I watch for?

It may take a week or more for this medicine to take effect. This is why it is very important to continue taking the medicine and not miss any doses. If you have been taking this medicine regularly for some time, do not suddenly stop taking it. Ask your doctor or health care professional for advice.

Rarely, this medicine may increase thoughts of suicide or suicide attempts in children and teenagers. Call your child's health care professional right away if your child or teenager has new or increased thoughts of suicide or has changes in mood or behavior like becoming irritable or anxious. Regularly monitor your child for these behavioral changes.

For males, contact you doctor or health care professional right away if you have an erection that lasts longer than 4 hours or if it becomes painful. This may be a sign of serious problem and must be treated right away to prevent permanent damage.

You may get drowsy or dizzy. Do not drive, use machinery, or do anything that needs mental alertness until you know how this medicine affects you.

Do not treat yourself for coughs, colds or allergies without asking your doctor or health care professional for advice. Some ingredients can increase possible side effects.

Your mouth may get dry. Chewing sugarless gum or sucking hard candy, and drinking plenty of water will help.
