ADHD is a genetic trait that is present at birth. It is the way a person's brain is wired. It allows people to think quickly, learn by doing, excel under pressure.

In adults with lack of REM sleep, often a Sleep Study will reveal various degrees of sleep apnea. People with this affliction may stop breathing as often as every 45-seconds, through the night. Thus, they awaken feeling drained, fatigued, and often with a dull headache from oxygen deprivation.

Strattera merely helps an ADD/ADHD person maintain focus. The drug also tends to interrupt ejaculatory function in men. However, Strattera should not interfere with REM sleep.

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 happens when Strattera and Seroquel are taken together?

My 14 year old has been on Seroquel for a couple of years now for his behavior problems. He is developmentally delayed with behavior problems. He has always been impulsive and has adhd. His doctor just put him on Strattera along with the Seroquel in hopes that it could help to focus. Well, it has only been two weeks and he has these anger issues that are starting to scare me. He picked up a kitchen chair and started to come after me with it. He has had several outbursts over little things. I am taking him off the Strattera and will let the doctor know later. We were all better off with him taking Seroquel only.

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...
