Thinking about switching from Adderall to strattera

Curious to know if you made this transition, and how it went?

I take 15 to 30mg of Adderall ir a day.

I want to switch because I'm noticing more agitation at lower doses and I'm reluctant to become dependent at 30mg.

It sounds strange because this drug has totally changed my life for the best. But I just have a huge fear that I'm damaging my brain.

My plan is to try herbal routes after college so I want to stay at a low dose.

But from what I hear strattera doesn't damage the brain... So maybe I can try this?

Strattera takes like 6 to 8 weeks to work

I tried strattera before switching to adderall. I didn’t notice anything until the 6 week mark and then it still wasn’t enough to overcome my ADD/ADHD
