I have been on Strattera for about 4 weeks. I started at 40mg and vomitted the first day. The second day I emptied out the contents of one of the pills so I was taking less. The third day I was back to 40mg. Now I'm at 80mg (about 2.5 weeks). Initially I noticed some good improvement for the first week and then any improvement disappeared. It could have been just the placebo effect initially. I'm taking this with 20mg of Prozac (only partial response) and my doctor was hoping the Strat would help with depression, but also cognitive deficiencies. I haven't noticed any real stimulating effects and I have taken ritalin and modafanil. If anything the stimulating effects don't resemble the true stims at all. My doctor said Strat could take about 3 weeks to really work. The last two days have been ok but I had a few very BAD days this past week. I'm going on 5-6 years of TRD, but my anxiety level is zero, maybe because of the prozac and lexapro before that. By the way the sexual side effects have been kinda bad. I'm looking into MAOI's now. Shoot me any questions you might have! Great board.
