Has the use of Straterra for bipolar disorder been investigated?

My brother has a pretty severe case of bipolar, he started taking strattera and it really didn't have bad effects on him, when he started taking Prozac with it, he had an emotional break down and attempted to stab himself with a pretty thick knife and the blade broke on his chest, he's now in a mental hospital for 3 months I recommend not taking strattera with a bipolar person or depressed person unless it's monitered because my brother isn't the only person I know of who had terrible effects.

What are the side effects of taking Prozac and Strattera?

You do not mention your age or what you are being treated for but young teens should be very careful about taking Prozac and their doctor should be monitoring them closely. Prozac side effects: insomnia, restlessness, nausea, and tension headaches, which normally go away within one to two weeks from the time it was first taken. One possible side effect, which remains for the time Prozac is taken, is its effect on sex life. NEVER stop taking Prozac without consulting your doctor. Strattera patients should also be monitored closely for liver problems. Stattera does work as well as Ritlain though with fewer side effects. The most common side effects from Strattera are the sleepiness, nausea and loss of appetite. tell your doctor and pharmacist what other prescription and nonprescription medications, vitamins, nutritional supplements, and herbal products you are taking. Be sure to mention any of the following: albuterol syrup or tablets (Proventil, Ventolin), amiodarone (Cordarone, Pacerone), bupropion (Wellbutrin), celecoxib (Celebrex), chlorpromazine (Thorazine), cimetidine (Tagamet), clomipramine (Anafranil), doxorubicin (Adriamycin), fluoxetine (Prozac, Sarafem), metaproterenol syrup or tablets (Metaprel), metoclopramide (Reglan), methadone (Dolophine), paroxetine (Paxil), quinidine (Cardioquin, Quinaglute, Quinidex), ranitidine (Zantac), ritonavir (Norvir), sertraline (Zoloft), and terbinafine (Lamisil). Your doctor may need to change the doses of your medications or monitor you carefully for side effects. Most of the meds listed have to do with enzyme inhibition in your liver. That's just basic pharmacology. So any doctor prescribing the two together had better be doing so in very low dosages. Otherwise the doctor is really gambling with with your liver and your brain. I have been taking 80mg straterra for about 2 years and just recently started taking 20 mg Prozac also. I have had 2 seizers from mixing both of them and was hospitalized. be very carefull when taking the 2 together.

Can Abilify Prozac and Wellbutrin be taken together safely?

If you are taking Abilify as a mood stabilizer for bipolar d/o, Prozac and Wellbutrin have the potential to induce a hypomanic / manic episode. However, Abilify is still commonly prescribed with an anti-depressant and is safe. Wellbutrin and Prozac are typically not prescribed together but can be safely prescribed together. Usually the doctor will prescribe a rather low dose of Prozac and Wellbutrin, since a high dose of both can lead to adverse side effects.

Can focalin and Strattera be taken together?

Focalin is dexmethylphenidate, a form of methylphenidate that has a lower abuse potential than Ritalin (methylphenidate) and other amphetamines, such as Adderall. It is a psychostimulant. It is primarily used for treatment of ADHD. Strattera is a non-stimulant ADHD medication that is commonly prescribed due to its very low potential for abuse. Taking Strattera and Focalin together increases the risk of cardiovascular problems and other side effects, such as nausea, insomnia, etc. Focalin is contraindicated with Strattera. I'm unaware of any cases where both are taken together.

Does Strattera slow you down while adjusting or does it mean that it just is not for the patient taking it?

Definately. When I was first put on Strattera, I noticed a huge difference in my energy level. I was fatigued and felt like I had no energy to do tough tasks. Don't worry though, after about a month, I quit experiencing this fatigue and was back to normal. I have been taking Strattera for 6 months now and for some time now have had no side effects from Strattera.

Why am I paranoid I am taking Prozac and Strattera?

If taking these two medications makes you paranoid, then you need to communicate that to your doctor so an alternate solution can be reached. You should be open with your doctor about side effects you are having. It could simply be that the meds are new and your body is getting used to them. If it persists after a month or two, you should see your doctor again. It could just be that your dosage is too high.
