No you're not rambling...

I have a similar concern with atomoxetine. It is helping drive / motivation and focus quite a bit, but it also leaves my emotions a bit raw, and it has made me a bit more angry. It seems to have mixed effects on my mood. On the one hand I am VERY happy to be less trapped in my head, and definitely more active during the day, but there is some increased emotionality / sadness (hopefully this will subside). Also, it can make my heart beat a bit faster / harder at times.

I guess I can explain it like this it's not improving my mood directly, but I seem to be giving up much less often - i.e. I have the energy to continue with tasks despite my mood being sour. I wonder if this (over time) will lead to a more 'bottom up' improvement in my mood.

It's annoying because the NRIs seem to have a really strong PUNCH, but I am always skittish about the effects on cardiac function.

I haven't monitored my BP recently. I should do this, but am always scared to do so.
