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.
