View Full Version : 80 or two 40's?

02-21-14, 12:31 AM
I have been taking one 40mg tablet twice a day. My GP gave me 80mg tablets.

Will one 80mg tablet last all day like two 40's do?

I have always believed that splitting you your over all dose is always better than all at once. It make sense to me.

Strattera is not a stimulant like Adderall or Ritalin.

It takes 2-4 weeks before the therapeutic effects become apparent,

and another 2-4 weeks before full therapeutic effect may be seen.

Therefore, it doesn't matter whether you take it once a day or twice a day.

Taking a smaller dose more often may minimize unwanted side effects though.

Well I can report that 80mg once a day has been semi successful. I have been feeling a bit down/sad but only for a few hours in the morning and buy the afternoon I am back to normal.

It was similar when I first started taking 40 per day so a I reckon within a week or two I should be back to my happy self.
