I wouldn't consider Strattera as having a high success rate when treating depression.

You know the deal - it certainly, without a doubt, unequivocally, most definitely, indubitably, quite possibly, might work. YMMV

I don't think anyone here would want to accidentally steer you away from a treatment that would end up being effective for you. One can only report what they themselves have experienced, what they have seen others experience, and what they have encountered in their personal studies of the literature.

I experienced a brief mild improvement of bipolar depression with Strattera that lasted less than three days. If you do decide to try it, take note that it can cause sedation or sleepiness during the second week that tends to disappear. If you haven't tried nortriptyine, I think that drug would be a better candidate to try first, unless you have already established a history of not responding well to multiple tricyclics.

What are you currently taking, and what is it about your current condition that you are not happy with?
