My 7-year-old son has severe ADHD. He has done fairly well on the Daytrana patch, but has always been very anxious. His psychiatrist recommended switching to Strattera due to the anxiety. After just 4 days I know that this was a bad move. He is very angry and states that he wants to hurt other people. Ritalin always left him a bit moody, but not enraged like this. He told me that he usually feels "happy" when he wears the patch but right now he feels "angry" and "really crabby." Not a good side effect, if you ask me.<br><br>A lot of the eyewitness accounts of Strattera are horrible. I wonder if this will turn into a Vioxx type situation sometime down the road.
