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

Yes, but you do not need as much Strattera because Prozac inhibits its metabolism therefore you maintain higher plasma levels of Strattera with less. It is safe to use both as directed by your doctor.

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.

Yes, although dxm will linger in your system longer because your body won't be able to metabolize the dxm as good as without Strattera.
