Does Strattera cause one to lose weight?

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!

Is Strattera like Vyvanse?

Vyvanse is a stimulant of the amphetamine class that is used to treat ADHD. It is closely related to Adderall. Vyvanse is a schedule II controlled substance.Strattera is a pseudostimulant used for the treatment of ADHD, since it has a much lower potential for abuse than amphetamines. It is not a member of the amphetamine class. It is not a scheduled controlled substance.Strattera is classified as a non-stimulant drug, it is in the group of SNRIs - serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors, while Vyvanse is a stimulant belonging to amphetamines.Strattera cannot make one feel 'high', so it really has a very low potential for abuse. But when used for treatment of ADHD, Strattera works slower than Vyvanse and other stimulants. To achieve the desired effects one may need several weeks.On the other hand, it is said that effects of Strattera are more steady, and patients on Strattera can feel fine all day long, while Vyvanse only boosts their abilities for a short period after being taken.

What are the side effects after going off of Strattera?

My 11 year old daughter had been taking Strattera for a little more than 3 years. About 5 weeks ago she decided on her own, without discussing it with her father and I, to stop cold turkey taking her meds. She was taking 60mg of Strattera and a melatonin every night before bed. She was taking it at night because of the stomach aches. they were just to much to handle during the morning at school. After a few weeks of not taking the meds she confided in my Mother that she was not taking the Strattera anymore. I couldn't really tell any major differences. The only big difference was her insatiable appetite In the about 5 or 6 weeks she has been off the Strattera(taking it for ADHD) she has gained 10lbs. She says she is now sleeping through the night. Falling asleep quite easily too. It used to take her more than an hour even with the Melatonin.

Can Enzyte be taken with Strattera?

I do not know specifically about Enzyte, but I currently take a small dose (2.5 mg) of Cialis concurrently with my 80 mg daily dose of Strattera. This was prescribed by my doctor to help fight the sexual side effects of Strattera. There have been no negative interactions that I can tell and the Strattera sexual side effects have pretty much been eliminated. If you are taking Enzyte to combat sexual side effects of Strattera, I would suggest talking to your doctor or at the very least the pharmacist to find out if there are any possible interactions. As far as I know, Enzyte is completely herbal (and from what I've heard... a placebo), so it probably won't have any interactions, but it is better to be safe than sorry!

Does Strattera cause headaches in children?

Wow, give Strattera a chance. My son also had really bad headaches, but after a while, maybe a week or so, he got over the headaches. I always gave it to him right before bed because I had also heard that it can cause nausea. Also, it is very important that you give Strattera the FULL amount of time to work. If you want an instant cure to ADD, this is NOT the drug. It takes 2 - 4 weeks to even start to show results. - I don't know what your doctor told you, but you shouldn't be giving it to him at night. Not only can it cause trouble sleeping, but it is a 12-hour time release medication so you are wasting about 8 hours of the effective time of the medication by making him try to sleep right after taking it. my son is 10 years old and has been on strattera for only three days he has for the last 2 days, complained of severe headaches i have searched the web for information on headaches as a possible side effect for this drug to no avail. I also would like any info on this subject http://www.rxlist.com/cgi/generic3/strattera_ad.htm This is the web page I found that shows a trial study of Strattera and it shows that 27% of those in the trial experienced headache. I started researching this because my daughter who has a history of migraine headaches started complaining more frequently of more severe headaches after she started the strattera. I noticed about 3 to 4 hrs after she takes the medicine the headache kicks in, 6 out of 7 days a week. She has been on the Strattera 3 weeks now. I hope this side effect will subside. My son is 12. He has been on Straterra for 1 year. He has had a headache almost everyday since he started taking it. It has worked wonders though and he does not wan to stop taking it. Yes, my son has been on Strattera for 4 months now, he is taking 40mg now. His headaches appeared soon thereafter. He is 12 and complains of top center pain on a daily basis. We thought they were due to sinus infection but after antibiotic treatment he is still getting the same pain in the same spot, an uncommon place for sinus pain. His concentration has greatly improved though, how much longer will he resist, I do not know. I frequently get headaches while on 40 mg once daily Strattera. I'm 16 years old and have been taking Strattera for nearly 2 weeks now. After upping my dosage from 25mg to 40 mg, the tension headaches at the top center got worse, but the increased focus and concentration help so much that the benefits outweigh the detracting side effects. If necessary, I balance out the Strattera with Tylenol or Excedrin, and that seems to fix the problem.

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
