My pdoc took the paper out that came with the sample bottle of Strattera 40 mg. It stated for adults or adolescents over 70 kg: "dose should be initiated at 40 mg and increased after a minimum of 3 days to a target total daily dose of 80mg administered either as a single daily dose in the morning or as evenly divided doses in the morning and late afternoon." That is what my pdoc went by. I also looked up on Strattera website, which gave me the same info. I still thought it sounded high. I went as far as to call a Pharmacist, he said Strattera is still very new, but the dose was not unusual for my age and weight (27...120lbs), even for beginners. The dose I'm taking now hasn't benefited me yet (now on my 5th day). I'm just still concerned as to why she took me off of my antiD. I know she likes to try one med at a time, but I thought that was a little strange. Oh well, maybe I just need to shut up and keep giving it a chance. I have a problem with finding the negative in everything.
