I know one guy who was misdiagnosed for years as having MDD. He complained about depression all of the time, even though he displayed no vegetative symptoms. He never told his doctor about his inability to keep things organized in his life. At some point, his doctor decided to play a hunch that he had adult ADD. He was placed on Straterra and never complained of depression again. He was also able to clean and organize his apartment.

Perhaps Strattera is selective as to which regions of the brain it acts on. NE alpha-2 activation in PFC via NRI rather than limbic activation?

In what ways is atomoxetine different from desipramine?
