The starter kits of Strattera that I got contained 25 and 40 mg pills. My pdoc gave me a handful of them, and 25 mg was a good starting dose for me. At 40 mg, I had some side effects for a week or so, then I tried 50, and 65...now I seem best at about 60 mg/day, so have a prescription for that.

Each dosage increase caused some side effects, but they subsided fast (except dry mouth, which isn't serious -- I just drink more water).

I don't understand why so many doctors want to start off with a high dose of this or other meds, since side effects are so common. My pdoc is the first doctor I've met who actually acknowledges the existence of side effects (probably because he's actually taken some of these drugs himself).
