Parents of ADHD Children
New to Straterra
Hello, my 10 year old son has never taken ADHD medications before and will be starting Straterra. I am terrified by the reported side effects re: increase in suicide, heart conditions, liver conditions.
Does anyone have experience to share regarding this Rx? What has been your experience with side effects or long term issues?
The doctor chose the non-stimulant because my son also takes steroid inhalers, which are contra-indicated for the stimulant class.
Thanks for your help
