Starting Strattera... Hope this works

Posted by SDA on December 30, 2003, at 21:52:40

I posted a rather long message here around 15 days ago:

Well, I saw my psychiatrist and he prescribed Strattera for me. He also told me to keep taking the Celexa. Right now I'm only taking the Strattera (at a starting dose of 25mg for 8 days); I've missed so many doses of Celexa that I think it would be better to stick to the Strattera and change only one thing at a time. The Celexa was for the depression that I was experiencing, but it seems to have pretty much gone away on its own.

I've taken three doses of Strattera so far, and am not feeling much of anything yet (obviously). Being home for Christmas break certainly helps, but my household isnít exactly the most restful place at the moment. My Dad has decided to leave my Mother for the time being and is living elsewhere. In the midst of her grief, my Mom decided to go ahead and redecorate my room (I have OCD, so this really helped me out a lot). And of course, our house is overrun with company.

On a more positive note, I managed to pull off some pretty decent grades at school, and will still graduate on time. This of course depends on whether or not I'm feeling better by the time I go back to school in mid January...

I'll keep you posted.
