I too am experiencing my first week on Strattera. My situation is more "pure" because I stopped Prozac and Buspar a couple of months ago, and Strattera is my only med. I just could not handle taking things every day that seem to make me so hungry all the time. I have gained nearly fifty pounds since I started taking Prozac ten years ago. I was always a skinny minnie before that and I can't incorporate all of this weight into my body image. Prozac, while immensely helpful, also took away my desire to exercise and much of my creativity.

I have depression with a subtext of ADD, but I'm unable to take stimulants because of a past history of drug abuse. So the doctor decided to try Strattera. I tried it for a few days but felt very tachycardic and nauseated and stopped, but decided to give it one more try. It's been about five days. I'm not depressed, I'm a little queasy, and most of all I don't feel terribly hungry. It's a little early to tell, but I seem to be able to stay on task a bit more. I'm interested in hearing from others who are taking the Strattera road, particularly as it relates to motivation in doing daily tasks and appetite.
