> Thanks,Todd. I don't understand all the biochemistry stuff--psychopharmacology was the one course I should have taken in grad school that I didn't. But clearly my pdoc made a hasty decision on this one and didn't consider interaction effects beyond the question of would she get sued for doing something the books say not to.

It's very hard for me to give up on Strattera, as I so much NEED something that will help me focus. I've avoided stimulants because I was addicted to a stimulant--cocaine--though I've been clean for 3 1/2 years.

Your pdoc doesn't sound all that bad and seems to at least be trying. I believe that most doctors would not be as familiar as to the nitty gritty of what I'm talking about as I am, and perhaps it really isn't that important. None of the drugs you are taking are particularly dangerous, and I mainly just wanted to suggest that the effective dosage of a drug may be magnified by other drugs in a cocktail. Where this really becomes important is when combining tricyclic antidepressants, which are lethal in overdose, with SSRIs such as Prozac, but I believe even most GPs are aware that this kind of combination is generally supposed to be avoided.
