Oct 1, 2007 (Started Dec 15, 2004)

  • Effectiveness
    Slight (for attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder)
  • Side effects
    Mild (constipation, elevated blood pressure)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 100 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: To be honest, this medication was ok, but I didn't see how it benefitted me to be on it. It helped me slightly with add/adhd(I don't believe that I am add/adhd as much as I am bipolar II and these symptoms are a result of being hypomanic). Perhaps this would have worked better if I was truly add/adhd. When I came off of it, I noticed that it did affect my moods to a degree, and I would get bouts of depression. However that didn't last very long. The side affects were very mild compared to my other medications.
Cost: $50-99 monthly
Side effects: constipation, elevated blood pressure

  • Side effects

  • Adherence

  • Burden

Advice & Tips: Caused severe heart burn. I normally have a strong enough stomach that nothing ever bothers me (spicy food, too much/too little fibre, bicycle parts), but if I took Strattera at something other then the EXACT right time relative to a meal, I got heart burn so severe that I considered calling 911.
Cost: < $25 monthly
