      It is day two of Strattera for my 7 year old, and about 30 minutes after taking 10mg. she is very itchy all over. Has anyone had experience with this? Wondering if it is a short term side effect. The good thing is she isn’t itchy during the day. So far, we have been pleased with the Strattera, much better than her previous time on the Generic of Adderall. Thank you for your input!

      Talk to the prescribing doctor about this. They will want to rule out an allergic reaction before continuing the medication, I would think.

      ADDitude’s medication summary for Straterra reads:

      “Contact your doctor immediately if you or your child experiences these signs of liver problems: itching, right upper belly pain, dark urine, yellow skin or eyes, or inexplicable flu-like symptoms.”
