My doctor told me since the Strattera is so new they are not really sure about the dosage so he let me go up to 120 since I wasn't getting much relief from the depression at 80. The 5-Htp I take is also a serotonin enhancer so I think that helps. I've lost 20lbs since taking the Strattera and my therapist thinks I am heading toward an eating disorder so this may be a new side effect since Effexor SR can trigger anorexia. I have tried SSRIS and I am extremely sensitive to them and anything that makes me gain weight, I refuse to take. I also have high blood pressure which I take magnesium for to keep it down while on the Strattera as well as 3 other meds. I don't have ADD, I am only taking this for depression and anxiety. I know my nephew tried it too for his ADD and he hated it. Some brains are more stubborn then others and mine happens to like the 120mg.
Good Luck!
