I agree with Nicole. Start low and the side effects won't be so overwhelming. I am a 6'1'' 180 lb male and I have started at 18mg dosing. I am already feeling an effect. I plan on titrating up only every 3-4 days to find the window that's appropriate for me.

If you have a mood disorder dx and take other meds along with the Strattera, it's more likley you're going to be all the more susceptible to all the SEs involved. Equally, having a borderline ADHD diagnosis means that you might not need the 80 mg as your final dosage level.

Too many doctors are too eagar to get you up there too fast. Start low, take it slow, and reserve making any conclusions until a week or two down the line.

Good luck
