Probably notI am not sure why you would do this, but if you take more than the recommended dose by sprinkling them or food or any other way, then you must immediatly go to hospital. There has been no recorded deaths by an overdose of Strattera although you may experience sleepyness, agitation, hyperactivity, abnormal behavior, and gastrointestinal symptoms.

Can Strattera help with depression?

I have had dysthimia (I think that is the right spelling) which is a difficult to treat, but not severe, depression. I have been on Strattera for 10 days, and I feel that the depression is lifting some. But there are other side effects that make it debatable if it is worth it. Strattera was originally intended to be a new antidepressant drug, but in clinical trials, no benefits could be proven. Since Strattera works to inhibit the reuptake of norepinephrine, the manufacturer ran trials on the effectiveness of Strattera for ADHD and was subsequently approved (Information is from Wikipedia), making Strattera the first non-stimulant ADHD medication on the market. If your doctor is giving you Strattera for depression, you might want to request a new drug, as that is basically an off-label use since Strattera is for ADHD and has been shown in clinical trials to NOT be effective for depression.

Tylenol pm with Strattera?

I have trouble sleeping while taking strattera, so I called my Doc and asked if I could take a Tylenol PM. She said yes, and I have been taking one a night and it works like a charm. I have only been on strattera for a week. I do take my strattera before I go to bed so that could be the problem. I started strattera one other time and took the first pill in the early afternoon and I had such head sensations that I quit it right away. Since then I realized I would probably have some side effects and am giving it another try. No head sensations if I take it in the evening. It seems to be starting to work.

What are the side effects of mixing Strattera and cocaine?

AnswerSince Strattera is not a stimulant like Ritalin or Adderal (Strattera is a Selective Neurotonin Reputake Inhibitor), I don't think there would be any life threatening effects. I've personal combined the two and I felt that the cocaine's effects may have been slightly muted by the Strattera, or it could have just been mediocre blow. None the less, I am not a doctor, and I would suggest that you read more into the subject.I suggest waiting until you have been on the medication for a while because I had a near death experience by smoking WEED in the first month of taking Strattera, seriously almost went to the hospital. Also, i got the weed from a cannabis club so it was definitely legit. I did cocaine when i was on a low dose of strattera and it was fine but after the weed incident I don't trust it on the higher dose...

Has anyone found Strattera to be as effective as Adderall XR for providing the motivation and energy to begin and complete tasks?

Strattera was a complete waste of time for me. Lots of side effects and no efficacy. Adderall XR is much better. Strattera seems to be useful for about 1/2 those who take it. Plus it's very new. Effects of low doses of stimulants are very well understood over time. NOT SO with Strattera, despite all the fancy marketing material. I had exact same experience as above post. Maybe Strattera is good at treating hyperactivity, but for motivation and drive it's terrible! Same here. Personally, I think Strattera is a drug they give people at first to see who's just trying to get speed from Dr.s and who wants to really get help. If you go through the hoops, I guess they assume your genuine. My doctor pescribed me strattera and when i took it i felt a no energy, i could not pay attention, and i felt depressed but then i took adderal and it was completely diffrent thing

Is strattera addictive?

I would say this medication could be addictive if someone is over medicated. Or it is taken improperly. == == Actually, Strattera is non-stimulant, non-addictive drug, which is why it is not a controlled substance. Clinical studies show: In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, abuse-potential study in adults comparing effects of STRATTERA and placebo, STRATTERA was not associated with a pattern of response that suggested stimulant or euphoriant properties. Clinical study data in over 2000 children, adolescents, and adults with ADHD and over 1200 adults with depression showed only isolated incidents of drug diversion or inappropriate self-administration associated with STRATTERA. There was no evidence of symptom rebound or adverse reactions suggesting a drug-discontinuation or withdrawal syndrome. == == == ==

Can you crush and snort morphine?

Time release capsules and regular capsules of morphine or morphine sulfate can be crushed into a fine powder and insufflated. Be wary of dosage, time release capsules can contain anywhere up to 120mg of morphine, snorting all at once could be dangerous to a novice user. Also be ware of gelling agents or adhesives contained in the beads, this may lead to a burning sensation in the nose.

How long after stopping Strattera does the testicular pain go away?

Testicular pain is a very rare (and mostly undocumented) side effect of Strattera. If you have testicular pain it could be another medical problem such as an STD or epydidymitis or if it is the left testicle and very painful it could be what is called a testicular torsion. However, myself and others have experienced testicular pain from taking Strattera that can range from mild to extreme. No doctor will believe you, but stopping the Strattera should take care of the pain in a few days. If it doesn't, seek a medical professional's opinion. EDIT: I don't think the person who wrote the answer above knows very much about strattera. Testicular pain is not an uncommon side effect of the medication. I have heard that side effects should subside within a weak, but that is not from experience and only from a number of anecdotal reports. In fact, some people have mentioned bad withdrawal symptoms lasting weeks but most people don't seem to have this problem.
