Re: Strattera for depression without ADD? SLS

In reply to Strattera for depression without ADD?, posted by SLS on July 10, 2003, at 16:04:12

I have depression, but no ADD. I've been on meds for the last 8 1/2 years. 1 1/2 years ago I crashed for the second time. We tried a bunch of med changes including Parnate. Nothing helped. 10 months later Prozac showed some promise, but I was so fatigued that I couldn't do anything. 13 months into the depression we tried Provigil and Strattera (each drug, on its own, didn't do enough, but together there was a sizable improvement in energy levels).

So I've been taking Strattera since February. There were side effects, (but I think they are gone now). Nausea and dizziness were the worst (Ginger capsules from the health food store helps the nausea). Start small and increase slowly so the side effects don't get overwhelming.

(Bonus) Strattera and Provigil (I can't tell which because I started them together) work really well at reducing suicidal ideation.

I take 80mg in the morning. I also take Prozac, so 80mg is actually a large dose (Prozac makes the Strattera more potent). He wants me to try 100mg.

So, I looked for a long time for Strattera. Why do you expect that it won't work?

Hope your search is successful.
