So I’ve been on Strattera for 9 months and recently decided I can’t take the tiredness/lack of motivation. Even Ritalin didn’t help much.
So at first I tried to drop Strattera because my psych said there were no withdrawal symptoms.
I became unable to leave my bed without intense dizziness. I felt super nauseous and got a terrible migraine. Not to mention I could hardly think and was even more exhausted.
I started retaking it and the symptoms resolved. I stopped again and the symptoms came back.
So now I’m tapering off where every week I go down slowly in dosage. I have anxiety, more headaches, irritability, lots of crying spells, ADHD symptoms have come back with a vengeance (that’s a predictable symptom), exhaustion, unmotivated, and I can hardly think.
Has anybody else experienced withdrawals, and how long did it last for you?
