    Strattera (atomoxetine)

    I've started taking Strattera today, for OI problems. It's supposed to take 4+ days to start feeling effects, but I've already got a nice buzz going, and I'm feeling very alert, but in a pleasant way. I'm on the lowest dose: 18mg. Is this normal? No idea if it's helping for OI yet :-P
