> I would have to say I am taking this for depression. I have been crashing lately on Lexapro and felt I needed to do something different. I had an ADHD eval last summer and the psycologist said I didn't have classical ADHD(but had a lot of the symptoms). I think what I thought was ADHD was really just variations of the overall problem: Depression. Anyway, I'm on day 7 of Straterra and haven't felt anything except maybe a slight reduction in appetite. I'm on 50mg. Maybe I just need more time or a higher dose? I tried Wellbutrin a few years back and it put me into major anxiety after taking it about 2 weeks. It took a full week of hell to clear it out of my body.

Thanks DB. I hope a higher dose will work for you... I know some folks on the board have had success with 80 mg. Has the Strattera made your anxiety worse? I love the antidepressant properties of it but would like to feel more calm throughout the day. It almost gives me too much energy and I find it difficult to relax and turn my mind off, especially at night. I will see what my doctor says tomorrow.
