Has anyone combined adderall and strattera?
 
So, adderall worked great for my concentration, but side effects of anxiety and depression with the comedown were terrible.

Now, I am prescribed strattera, which really doesn't seem to be helping with my focus at all. I know it takes 6-8 weeks to start working, but I've been on 25mg and upped to 40mg strattera for a few months now.

I'm curious.. is it possible to combine strattera and adderall, since strattera I've heard is considered by some to be an anti-depressant. Would combining the 2 enable me to get the good effects of concentration from adderall, minus the bad side effects like anxiety and depression/help with the comedown?

I'm also prescribed 50mg zoloft which I take daily at night, but I really can't tell if it does anything.

I take both. 40 mg strattera and 20 mg XR adderall. Took a about 6 weeks to notice anything from the strattera and it by itself was not enough so my doc also prescribed adderall. Things seem to be doing good.

How long have you been taking both?

About 6 months or so.
