What are the side effects of taking Strattera and Prozac 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.
Do mood changes caused by Strattera diminish or disappear over time?
: You should not be experiencing these sorts of effects while taking Strattera. This is what is mentioned on the Black Box Warning for Strattera, including other changes in behavior such as irratibility and suicidal thoughts especially in children. But either way it is clear that you need to contact your doctor and you should dicontinue use of Strattera.
What are the potential side effects of Strattera?
Most children in clinical trials who experienced side effects were not bothered enough to stop taking Strattera. The most common side effects were upset stomach, decreased appetite, nausea or vomiting, dizziness, tiredness, and mood swings. As with all ADHD medications, growth should be monitored during treatment although height and weight data measured for up to 3 years indicates minimal, if any, long-term effects. In rare cases, Strattera can cause allergic reactions, such as swelling or hives, which can be serious. Your child should stop taking Strattera. Call your doctor or healthcare professional if your child develops any of these symptoms. Strattera has not been tested in children under 6 years of age. This is not a complete list of possible side effects. Contact your doctor or healthcare professional if your child develops any unusual symptoms.
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!
What will happen with 100mg of Strattera?
Answer: Strattera is not at all harmful at 100mg. Basically if you can handle or avoid the side effects the result of taking 100 mg would be increased alertness, and better attention span. It really helps you concentrate. However, Strattera has a black box warning about the potential of suicidal thoughts in children. So keep this in mind, and I would not recommend taking Strattera at all if you have any form of depression, anxiety, or any form of bipolar or psychosis. And you should stop taking Strattera immediately if you start to have thoughts of suicide or sudden changes in behavior such as agitation or irratibility. Ultimately you should talk to your doctor to determine if 100mg is necessary for your individual treatment. hope this helps***

If you do not have ADHD and take Strattera what will happen?
What would you be taking the Strattera for? If your doctor thinks your symptoms can be helped by strattera, then hopefully that is what will happen!

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.
Tylenol pm with Strattera?
I have trouble sleeping while taking strattera, so I called my Doc and asked if I could take a Tylenol PM. She said yes, and I have been taking one a night and it works like a charm. I have only been on strattera for a week. I do take my strattera before I go to bed so that could be the problem. I started strattera one other time and took the first pill in the early afternoon and I had such head sensations that I quit it right away. Since then I realized I would probably have some side effects and am giving it another try. No head sensations if I take it in the evening. It seems to be starting to work.
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 when patient abruptly stops taking Strattera?

What are the side effects of mixing Strattera and cocaine?
Answer Since Strattera is not a stimulant like Ritalin or Adderal (Strattera is a Selective Neurotonin Reputake Inhibitor), I don't think there would be any life threatening effects. I've personal combined the two and I felt that the cocaine's effects may have been slightly muted by the Strattera, or it could have just been mediocre blow. None the less, I am not a doctor, and I would suggest that you read more into the subject. I suggest waiting until you have been on the medication for a while because I had a near death experience by smoking WEED in the first month of taking Strattera, seriously almost went to the hospital. Also, i got the weed from a cannabis club so it was definitely legit. I did cocaine when i was on a low dose of strattera and it was fine but after the weed incident I don't trust it on the higher dose...
