I feel the benefits outweight the risk's one very good thing about the drug is that it is not a controlled stimulant like Ritalin or adderal, like any psychiatric medications there are a slew of side effect's but there is only one way to find out whether you will be effected by any of these my suggestion give the medication a try for a minumum of a month have loved one's or wife ect pay attention and see if it effects you in a negative or positive manner good luck try not reading into thing's as much they will terrify you

Is it safe to take Prozac with Strattera?

Neither Prozac nor Strattera are uppers or downers. Prozac works on serotonin, and Strattera works on norepinephrine, two of our brain cocktails. Both drugs level out their respective neurotransmitters; nothing is added or removed, just made to work more efficiently. Prozac may inhibit some of the activity by Strattera; as for being safe, however, this is for a doctor to decide and monitor. Each case is different.

Can Strattera cure bed wetting?

Strattera has not been approved for pediatric indications. It's approved for Adult ADD only, so take your doctors advice with a grain of salt. Many drug companies have come under fire recently for marketing their products to doctors for many "off-label" indications that have not been proven safe or effective in clinical trials. What I am saying is that a drug rep with dollars in mind might have put that recommendation in your doctor's mouth and he is playing right into their clever marketing scheme. Instead, I would ask your doctor about the generic, and much cheaper, Clonidine. I have seen it work in several cases for the specific indication of pediatric bed wetting. While I too don't agree with overzealous use of off-label prescribing of drugs to patients (especially one as new as Strattera), I do want to say this: One of the known side effects of Strattera is urinating less than usual. For someone with overactive bladder, this is could be a godsend. So if you are an adult with ADD or ADHD and have problems with incontinence, Strattera may be just what you're looking for.

Does Strattera give the same results as Adderall?

Strattera and Adderall can both be used for ADHD but they have different side effects and therefore different results. Strattera website: Adderall website: ~ T NO! If you research any REAL study done with Adderall XR or Strattera, you will see that Strattera is maybe 50% as effective as Adderall XR at the most. Also, from patient and physician feedback, you will see the same results. Strattera is not only weak in its efficacy, it is not a very safe product. Adderall XR and other stimulants have been around for over 50 years and are very studied regarding safety. Stimulants such as Adderall XR are proven safe and effective for the treatment of ADHD. Think about it, Eli Lilly has spent more advertising Strattera than all of the other 7 or 8 ADHD branded products combined. Why is Adderall XR still the number one prescribed and fastest growing ADHD product on the market? Because it works the best and has the highest response rate. It has changed my life.

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!
