I have been on Strattera for several months. I started at 18 mg and I am now at 120mg even though it is above the FDA recommendations of 100mg. My doctor is using me as a guinea pig for depression. I am finally seeing some results. I still experience dizziness and the dry mouth. I use biotene toothpaste and gum and carry water with me wherever I go. Actally it seems to have lessened since I bumped up to 120mg. I still have no appetite which is fine with me. I find it very good for anxiety and ruminating. It also helps clear the suicide thoughts out.
I tried Lexapro which was bad and also Remeron which worked but made me swell up like a pig. So the STrattera is a trial thing for me and it seems to be working. I'm sticking with it. Also no sexual side effects as you have on other anti-depressants. But I also take 300 mg of 5-HTP in the evening. It helps with the sleep problem Stattera can cause. Frequent awakenings.
