View Full Version : Thinking about switching to Strattera

Hi Everyone, since February of this year I have been taking 2x 10mg of Adderall IR and while it worked well in the beginning I can feel it not really doing it's job anymore. I don't want to increase dosage.

I feel like my ADHD (inattentive) has gotten worse. I was able to "get by" with work up until Adderall and, while it was great for a few months, I can't seem to "get by" without it.

I'm 22 years old and do not have any other medical issues.

Would you guys recommend Strattera? What should I look out for?

Hmm. I think that they now know the best treatment for inattentive. I just don'tk now what it is.. haha I'm inattentive on adderall. Yea, I'm dependent on it. You can do it though if you have only been taking it for a while and you want to switch. Hope that helps!

Anyhow, I found this great new book for inattentives. FInally another one!

Why don't you wan't to increase the dosage?
How are the other areas of your life?
In what ways are you worse?

Strattera is commonly given to, and commonly requested by, people who are addicted to stimulants - because it isn't one, so it's one part of helping to keep them out of trouble.

Is that some of what's behind your question?

Im in the same boat as you. I got by on dexedrine which is very similar to adderall for years, but its not working for me anymore. and i want to try either wellbutrin or strattera.
