Gasping air: Gasping for air once every several months during sleep may be due to bad dreams. If happening on regular basis with snoring, look for sleep apnea. Strattera (atomoxetine) effects the heart rhythm. You need 24 holter monitor and sleep apnea study. Also ENT doctor to find out any nasopharynx abnormality. Thanks.
