I’m on Strattera (Atomoxetine) and it’s the first ADHD med I’ve tried, I’ve been on it for about 60 days now at 18mg. It’s hardly doing anything, frankly.
I feel a little more focused, a little less hungry, and a bit more awake. I pushed my psychiatrist to let me continue on with it for a bit to avoid stimulants if possible and she agreed, but I’m losing hope with it. I’m scared stimulants might make my anxiety worse or have other side effects.
Obviously a psychiatrist always gets the final say, but I’m asking for personal experience from people who DID find help from Strattera.
