Strattera had a bad physical side effect for me, but it happened quickly. So, it wasn’t something that lingered. People keep saying I’m depressed. I feel like I’ve been depressed, and this isn’t close? Maybe I was majorly depressed before? Anyway, I got put on Lexepro. That was horrible. So, then I gave up. I agree that exercise helps very much. I get rid of some of that hyper before my brain can turn it into anxiety. It’s hard to find time, but sometimes I feel like just parking in the parking space furthest from where I’m going gets rid of a little anxious energy (especially if I don’t really want to go). Thanks for posting this. I’ve been wondering if I should try medication again.
