I have been taking Strattera for ADD symptoms but testing says I also have depression and anxiety. I don't feel depressed but I do feel the anxiety. My doc started me on Lexapro also and that makes me feel smoother, I guess. I don't know how to explain it really.

But I still lack my concentration and energy that I had at first when beginning the Strattera. I now take 100 mg at bedtime and 25 mg in the morning. I can actually take that 25 in the am without falling asleep like before. But I sleep way too well now but in the beginning I had restless sleep and woke up very early full of energy. I miss my energy.
