> I am so relieved that I'm really not stupid or lazy like I thought. The hyperactivity has winded down so far, but I'm not sure if that's from the Strattera or from fatigue from all this medication pdoc has got me on. I can't really see an improvement in attention or focus, but I did put away groceries and rearrange my refriderator today, something that I was actually enthused, not overwhelmed to do. Maybe it is working a little so far. I think the dosage might be a bit too low (40 mg) what do you think?

> Everyone is different as far as dosage needed to benefit. Have you switched from Zoloft to Effexor yet? I would think that with Strattera and Effexor together, you could take a lower dose of either or both of those meds.

I have my prescription for Effexor XR 75 mg. right now. It's from my medical doctor. I called my pdoc, and left a message with his receptionist telling her I wanted to get switched and for him to call me back. Then, SHE called me back again telling me he wanted me to stay on the Zoloft as prescribed, but to take it at night if it was making me drowsy. So, angily, I called my medical doc and gave him the scoop, and he filled the Effexor over the phone. The reason I haven taken it yet is for two reasons. 1) I don't want pdoc to get mad at me for going behind his back, and 2) I heard there's significantly uncomfortable withdrawl effects from Effexor. Have you ever heard about the withdrawl? And should I be concerned?
