Advice & Tips: Caused severe heart burn. I normally have a strong enough stomach that nothing ever bothers me (spicy food, too much/too little fibre, bicycle parts), but if I took Strattera at something other then the EXACT right time relative to a meal, I got heart burn so severe that I considered calling 911.
