> Noradrenergic drugs will make you fight harder. This is good if your depression takes the form of constant self-blame, passivity, and lack of endurance (classic melancholic depression) but is not what is needed if you're closer to 'normal' along these lines. These drugs create imbalances which are either therapeutic (you're lacking in something and the drug functions as a kind of prosthetic device so you function, more or less, or at least keep going) or it pushes you too far in a direction you don't need to go. That's why Strattera gets many complaints about causing mood swings, anger, etc. It increases emotionality, as a general rule.
Hello, After reading theses few posts, could it be that your dosages were too high? Norepinephrine is the happy chemical in our central nervous system. In excessive amounts symtoms occurring which are similar to those observed with tricyclic antidepressant usage seems reasonable. [carbo-craving, increased appetite, inevitable weight gain,and agitation as well].
What dosages were you taking and how quick was the titration?
Were additional Pychotropics involved?
Are there similar references to this ill-effect at all doses documented elsewhere?
Inquiry only. Thanks Micro
