Re: Straterra - No other takers?

I just started Straterra at 40 mg. I weigh 240. For my ADD/OCD/Anxiety/Depression I take 1200mg Neurontin (primarily for neuropathic pain, secondarily for anxiety) 200mg Zoloft, 2.5 mg Zyprexa and 20 mg Adderall. The above combination, without the Straterra, worked fine for almost a year. But I started having intense anxiety and anger. Pdoc and I thought we would taper off the Adderall and replace it Strattera.

The first day I took Strattera on top of my normal dose of Adderall. I felt the Strattera within an hour. Combined with the Adderall, I felt "good" but way too racy until the end of the day. However, at the end of the day I felt "solid" and composed.

I backed off my Adderall on day 2 and felt less racy.

Today is day three. I got up without feeling like I "needed" Adderall to get going. I'm a little sluggish but believe its because I stopped the Adderall.

Tonight, I will take a second 40 mg Strattera and see how it goes at 80 mg total. After the first two and half days, I am extremely hopeful.

Side effects I have noticed include racing heart one hour after taking Strattera on the first day. Since then, my heart has been normal. My mouth and eyes are a little dry, but not remarkably. My appetite has been a little off. No problems, yet, with sex, sleeping or urination.
