> I am taking 12.5 mg of Atomoxetine (Straterra) now. Iíve been on it for a total of 3 weeks now. I found that if I took more it reversed the good effect and even made me worse and sleepy. At the lower dose I just get the good effects (which include an improved sex life!). Better focus on work, less fatigue. Not as much of a roller-coaster as the Adderall, Ritalin, dexidrine had been. First week was the best. Iím wondering if it will poop out after a while? Had a bit of trouble with sleep the first few days.
Glad to hear your sleep improved.
> Seems like it drops out a bit in the afternoon? Has anyone tried taking it morning and noon?
> I split 25mg capsules (as long as they charge so much I will keep splitting pills).
I was going to split my 40 mg. caps and asked the pharmacist. She called Lilly and the rep said not to cause the contents are caustic with skin contact. Could be Lilly wanting to get more $$ from selling those 18's, but it could actually be caustic too.
