Well I've been on Strattera for several days now. Yesterday I started breaking out with little red itchy bumps on my legs. It spread to my arms, back, belly, chest, and neck. Today the rash started getting worse. It was burning and itching so bad, I was going insane. I finally went to the ER, they believe it was a delayed allergic reaction to the Strattera. They gave me shots of benadryl, epinepherine, and a steroid. My face is also getting a little puffy. They released me with a prescription of Medrol Pak ( a steroid), and told me to take benadryl on a regular basis. I haven't taken any other meds that could have caused it. I took the sample bottle of strattera with the paper insert to the ER with me. The Dr. looked it over. They do believe the Strattera caused this. I still have a horrible rash. I itch, but the meds have helped a little. They told me to stop taking my strattera, and call my pdoc. Well I'm heading into the bathtub to take a cool Aveeno oatmeal bath. I'll keep everyone updated.
