Re: re-starting strattera-- Day 1

The free sample packs that I got from my pdoc each had several 25 mg pills to start with, plus 14 40 mg pills. So, that's made it pretty easy for me to try 25, 40, 50, and 65 mg. It took me a short time to get used to it, but I really like it now (I've only been on it about 3 1/2 weeks). I just asked for a prescription for 60 mg/day, and will see how that goes.

The "target dose" for the average person is supposed to be 80 mg, according to the manufacturer . Interestingly, they don't make that dose, so you'd have to get two expensive prescriptions, or a "double" prescription for the 40 mg version, to achieve that. I can't imagine why...($$$$$???). But individual responses seem to vary tremendously, and around 50-60 mg seems about right for me so far.

Based on my experience and that of some others here, I'd be cautious with dosing and go up in increments -- I had no side effects at 25 mg but noticeable (though not severe) ones at 40 mg. These subsided in about a week though.

Good luck!
