Best Answer

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.

Sure, most drugs can be prescribed for extended periods of time. Certainly antidepressants (Strattera is a failed antidepressant) are prescribed as such. No studies have examined the long-term effects of Strattera, and therefore it is not recommended that Strattera be used in the long-term. In fact, the Strattera drug information specifically states,"Strattera is not for long-term use." Be careful with drugs like Strattera (antidepressants in general): their specific effects on the brain and their long-term effects are not well-known. These drugs can permanently alter your brain chemistry and cause a variety of secondary effects (for which you'll be prescribed more medications). Of course, this is just my opinion, and it is based on anecdotal evidence. Be cautious.

This may not be extremely helpful, but for my boyfriend... he has been off for almost 6 months and is still suffering from sexual side-effects.

Just stop the medication. It lasts a long time in the system (up to 6 weeks) so it's not like you're stopping cold turkey. Wait a week at least before you restart another medication at a lower dose than usual.

Do the side effects of Strattera go away over time or will whatever side effects that are present after 3 weeks be permanent as long as the drug is taken?

: Depending on the side effects you are experiencing from Strattera, some may reoccur each time you take the drug, while other may subside with time. I took Strattera for 6 weeks, and my heartburn did not go away so I stopped taking it. Strattera seems like one of those drugs where the side effects actually do occur and some are more extreme than the others. Im going to say that for the most part the side effects will most likely not go away. But for example if you get headaches, you could take some kind of aspirin, or Tylenol. (if your doctor approves) or maybe you just get used to it and it doesnt bother you, but from what I've seen the side effects are reoccuring and vicious. hope this helps*************

How long will Strattera stay in your system for a drug test?

Strattera (atomoxetine) has a half-life of three to four days. This means it has a steady state of about 15 days. This is about normal for most drugs. As far as how long it treats ADD/ADHD symptoms, it seems to last about six hours. Strattera affects hyperactivity and impulse control by reining it in by treating chemicals in the brain and nerves that cause those conditions.

I am not sure what happens for long periods of going without since being on Strattera; but have found that when I miss a day of my two doses of 40 mg each (80 total/day) I end up cranky and with a headache. If I am not mistaken, Strattera is a drug that you have to slowly come off of.

Does it cost extra to have Strattera compounded into a liquid and is that covered by insurance?

It usually does cost a little extra to have Strattera compounded into a liquid, but as long as you have prescription insurance, compounding is often covered. As a pharmacist, I compound strattera into a liquid formulation at a relatively low cost and submit the claim to the patient's insurance to give the patient the maximum cost-effectiveness.
