Re: Does anyone know?

Update: Heading to ER. Nurse said the symptoms should not be getting worse. Told me to stop taking it completely. I think they are starting to wonder if it is med related at all now. So scared! My mom is grabbing DD from school(bonus to her working in the building) and coming to get me.

ETA: I have an appointment with the Dr on Monday. We will look at a neuro consult then.

Oh mamma! I hope they get you patched up and feeling better quickly. Sounds like your DD is in good hands with Grandma, so focus on taking care of yourself!

OP, I hope you get an answer soon and that the solution is something simple.
I can't find anywhere that says how to come off but found the adult on is what the Dr said. 3 days 40mg and then 80mg. I did 5 days at each 25, 40, 60 and 80. Symptoms of migraines started at 60mg one of the last days on it. Worsened with 80.

Re: Update Post 11 Does anyone know?

Well I am home. My phone died. It looks like they think I have/had a migraine with no headache and turns out my barely there UTI is now a major bladder infection. Well that explains the lightheaded feeling, just over all crappy feeling, etc. I guess the other expensive antibiotic didn't work. The new one that was 1/6th the cost of the other I hope will work.
Debating on calling out for tomorrow. It is a 7am-3pm shift. I feel horrible so we will see.
My first bp was really high, the second was a bit better, not as low as my normal but better.
I will still see my Dr Monday and I won't be taking anymore Strattera.

Sounds like good news overall. If you can afford to take the day off tomorrow, do it. Rest!

Afford it not really but I think I have to! So I called in already. I will figure out money later. My mom mentioned she could help if needed.

Nope I haven't. They seem to think it is the bladder infection and migraine with no headache just numbness. My mom gets aura ones with no headache. I just never have had this before.

Re: New update Post 20 MRI!!! Does anyone know?

Well as of around 11am and 2nd dose of antibiotics for yesterday(3rd total) I was feeling better while sitting. But standing was still bad. So I waited to see and ended up calling in this am. I am still having issues while standing! I called my Dr's office. They are referring me over to a place for an MRI for tomorrow! They do not want me driving either. Ugh! I am so wishing another day of antibiotics would have helped.
I still have to call work and let them know. This just kind of blew my mind. BTW I haven't driven today. I did yesterday but short distance and very slow school speeds.
