Its hard to guess how long a thorough assessment should take, as so much depends on the specific situation --- in some cases the diagmnosis is very clear from the start and can be readily confirmed. It sounds, though, as if you would be wise to seek a second opinion from a CHild Psychiatrist, to set your mind at rest. strattera is generally used in ADHD, though I have heard of some using it in Asperger's syndrome. I'm less sure about Cipralex, a rather over-fashionable and over-used antidepressant, and have founf little really good data on its use in children overall.
