I was begun on 40 mg Strattera back in March. I didn't double my dose as I was supposed to after two weeks, thus I stayed on the 40 for six weeks. I was then seen again and did double the dose up to 80 mg.

At 40 mgs, I found morning doses made me extremely tired and nighttime doses kept me awake, however i preferred to use Strattera at nite with xanax or benadryl for sleep. When I went to 80 mgs at bedtime, this did not change and my early morning rising increased but it was a good thing! I was able to get up and work effectively and concentrate better on my work (i work at home on the computer). What a wonderful thing! However, come late morning/early afternoon i was dead tired and could do no more.

I like these effects that Strattera has given me but I will be starting Ritalin during the daytime soon to counteract these effects and be productive the entire day long, not just early morning. I had a trial of the Ritalin and found it to be a wonderful combo so I will take it regularly.

It's been a long time since I've been able to be functional and accomplish so much during my days. I feel human again!
