Hi

I'm 5,5 week in now at Strattera.
Started with 40 mg (sleeping 7/8 hours most of the time)
Titrated up after 2,5 week to 60 mg (sleep 6/7 hours) 2,5 week later titrated up to 80 mg and sleep for max 6 hours per night.
Am I a poor metaboliser? (CYP2D6)
I am worrying about my sleep.. dit the sleeping problems disappear?

:thankyou:

I don't know, why would you say that? Seems like 60mg is the right dose.

Everyone's different - but I take it you are waking up tired and want to sleep longer?

I've been on Strattera for 13 years and I definitely sleep lighter when on it. But I wake up like clock work, feel more rested and am less drowsy when I get up. Where-as previously, I had to be hit with a sledgehammer to wake up and I always felt like I could sleep for another 2 hours.
