Re: Do you take Strattera in the morning or at night?

I take mine in the morning (6:30), but it wears off by 2:30. I may start taking it later if it continues to end so soon.

I take mine in the morning, with breakfast to avoid any heartburn effects. I am still tinkering with the dose so it wears off after about 7 hours, need to get it longer than that.

Re: Do you take Strattera in the morning or at night?

I take mine in the morning, I do notice that when I have had to wait till the afternoon the channels are all over the place. Which kind of confused me because I thought Strattera built up in our system so that kind of thing wouldn't happen...

Maybe I am just not on it long enough yet. I started about 3 weeks ago. 1 week at 25mg, 1 week at 40mg and now I am at 60mg since last Friday.

I saw a post on these forums that said what I just said, but probably in a better way...

My foo with these things I like to call words is not always that strong..

The poll needs the option "Both", and perhaps "other".

Re: Do you take Strattera in the morning or at night?

60mg at 7am.
60mg at 1-2 pm

It wears off around lunch and 8 pm.

Hence the reason I'm posting here instead of working on my report!

Gotta go.

Re: Do you take Strattera in the morning or at night?

Hey guys, sorry to get off subject but I need some encouragement. I love my Strattera but the sexual side effects are concerning. I just finished my second week. 1st week 40 mg., second on 60 mg. and going to stay there for awhile. Does the "willie" ever return back to normal?

I really don't have any sexual side effects from Strattera and never really did. Maybe I did for the first day and didn't notice.

Don't worry Mike, willie will be fine. It might take a little while. I'm at about 16 weeks now and at 100mg for the last 8.

I take it when I get up in the AM and it "wears off" a bit by bedtime -- around 15-16 hours later.

But I've been able to go off of caffeine completely and am more alert by a long shot than I had been before.
