It may be worth trying strattera on its own, BUT I would caution you that it is not an antidepressant. I understand that it shares some properties as antidepressants and may improve mood for people with primary ADHD (and depression secondary to ADHD). However, I did not do well on atomoxetine by itself. It did improve energy / motivation but my mood was very sour on it. Have you ever tried wellbutrin? It would not have the typical SSRI like side effects, and can actually improve concentration (like straterra).

I would communicate with your doctor your concerns. There certainly are other options for depression that may be much more tolerable than zoloft + antipsychotic. For example, trintellix is an option that has a proven pro-cognitive effect. If you're taking Fluanxol as a depression adjunct, you could try abilify. It is approved for depression augmentation and has a much lower risk of blood sugar issues. Fluanxol is a bit strange in the absence of any psychotic like symtpoms.
