How regretable that we have arrived at using psychotropic drugs to do what interacting as parents and children should do. Also pushups, pullups and just old "monkey business" fun on grass fields and swinging in the jungle gym accomplishes in the way of burning up extra energy and working off frustrations. Also good heart to heart sit down talks with the rules laid out by the adult to the child,(no buddy buddy stuff), letting them know this is business do work wonders. Turn off your damn T.V.'s and video games: Get out and walk in and wonder at all the blessings of the real world -- GOD's World. This is from a 1961 Fox Lane grad in Texas. Regards, Richard Sanders

No one knows what the long-term side-effects, Strattera is going to have on people
Hope we don't learn the hard way, Strattera is linked to heart failure and suicide

Eli Lilly warned doctors that, Strattera, its drug to fight attention deficit disorder drug has caused severe liver injury in at least two patients. The announcements resulted in the three companies losing a total of $30 billion in stock value.

In the United States alone, psychiatrist, doctors and Eli Lilly are all cashing in on the drugging of both children and adults for ADD and ADHD which are both subjective, the diagnosis are based on a list of behaviors.

The incestuous relationship between the American Psychiatric Association, FDA and the drug industry is one of the biggest crimes in the history of our country.

The pharmaceutical industry has so much money to throw around; they can pretty much do what ever they want with no accountability.

It was against the law for the drug industry to directly advertise prescription drugs to the public.

Well it appears the pharmaceutical industry has paid and lobbied their way to have that law changed, because we continuously keep getting direct advertisements on television, radio and magazine ads. These advertisements have tremendously increased their profits.

Now a days all I'm getting on television is "Do you suffer from adult ADD", Ask your doctor if Strattera is right for you". Now they are targeting adults as well as children.

It's getting to were consumers are telling the doctors what prescriptions they need, when it should be the other way around.

Direct to consumer advertising of prescription drugs should be banned.

The FDA's not doing anything about it; is this because they get so much money from the drug industry? Why doesn't the DEA step in?

We have exposed the risks, dangers and deaths of children caused from psycho-stimulant drugs used in the treatment of childish behaviors.

Indian Strattera from works great. I am able to focus and am able to do more tasks at once, which my job requires. I am now able to sit down for more than 10 minutes at a time and read, write, and study for my college classes. The only thing that bothers me is that I sometimes forget to take my dose of medication. Other than this instance, I am able to function better as a person!
Tracking was relatively good. When I say that I mean it gave you dates for purchase, processed, and shipped. Only downside was that it took 12 days when they said it would only take 3-5. The tablets did come all the way from India and ultimately took the normal amount of time from the shipping date.

I was diagnosed with ADHD in 6th grade and have taken Indian Stattera ever since. I am a college student now and its worked so well for me that I continuously make good grades. I would recommend this medicine to anyone who is having problems finding one to work.
