View Full Version : Does strattera faster heartrate settle with time?

Im on Strattera for the 2nd time in years. Ive been on it for 7 weeks now (3 weeks on 60 mg) but about 4 weeks ago my heartrate bumped up to the highest end of normal while resting (100bpm just sitting on the couch). I wear a fitbit watch which is why i know my heart rate. Just wondering if this will settle down with time and go back to my normal 70 while sitting??

What does your doctor say? Have you seen a cardiologist?

Not much. They say it can be normal. No cardiolost since being on med. Have been in the past before meds. Heart was normal and fine. I know this increase can be normal, but im just wondering it it is temporary or long term for the duration of the med.
