Everyone reacts differently to medications, but typically the side effect associated with Strattera when it comes to weight is a decreased appetite and potential weight loss because of it. Make sure to mention any questions such as this one to the physician who is prescribing the medication to you. Hope this helps! Dr. B.

I've been taking Strattera for a little over two months. During the first week or two, I had some appetite reduction, but it has since leveled off. I am managing to maintain my current weight pretty easily. With that said, keep in mind that it likely effects people differently (like most drugs). BTW, I used to take Adderall years ago. It had much more of an appetite suppressing effect on me than Strattera has. Effortlessly!
