Strattera (Atomoxetine)

if someone were to snort a pill called strattera, would they get the same effects as adderal since they are both used to treat ADD?

no, totally different active ingredients. Strattera is something like atomoxetine whih affects epinefrine(sp?), and adderall contains amphetamine and dextroamphetamine.

Strattera (SNRI)

Talked my doctor into prescribing it for depression & maybe to help with coke cravings (I kicked 5 days ago)... normally prescribed for ADHD/attention deficit disorder.



http://www.rxlist.com/cgi/generic3/strattera.htm



It's a weird buzz... gives me around-the-head and full body tingles like coke, and is a definite up. Blocks the reuptake of norepinephrine and (indirectly) dopamine, which ain't that different from what cocaine does. It's supposedly nonaddictive.



Can't wait til I get to a higher dosage... right now I'm on 25mg/day, will be going up to 40 and then 60. Really curious how much of an up it will be, and hoping for some euphoria and/or tweakiness.

Keep us informed. I would like to know how ur higher doses turn out.


So does it feel like being on cocaine at all at the 25mg dose? If its pretty much what coke does, it must be somewhat like it at a small dose.

Naah, it's not really like being on coke. More like being on a low dose of meth, with a fast heartbeat & mild tweak. Will inform later after I raise the dosage.

OK, I never did continue on Strattera because it wasn't doing jack for me. According to the guy at crazymeds.org the stuff can make you euphoric, but that dude's crazy ).



Anyways, I'm on Wellbutrin now. Interesting but it's actually a pretty good up (taken at normal dose, 300mg/day) and seems to kill my coke cravings too. Just makes it hard to get to sleep at night, but damn if I ain't used to that already (LOL).



Looks like I might stay off coke, I got 7 days off it & I'm tired of blowing money on the shit. Would be nice to spend my $$ on something that's gonna hang around for awhile.

Strattera, (atomoxetine)

I have recently been given this, and I am debating on what to do -

What, if any, are the effects of this? Is it an amphetamine? Any information would be appreciated..

Thanks,

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Strattera, judging it safe and effective for the treatment of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in children, adolescents, and adults.
Strattera is a selective norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor, a class of ADHD treatment that works differently from the other ADHD medications available.
Strattera is the only FDA-approved non-stimulant ADHD medication clinically proven effective for adults.
Strattera is the first non-stimulant medication approved for the treatment of ADHD in children, adolescents, and adults.
Because Strattera is a non-controlled prescription medication, it offers the convenience of phone-in refills and physician samples.
Strattera is an oral capsule and can be taken once or twice a day to provide full-day relief from ADHD symptoms.

Would you say it's worth it to try to get fucked up on strattera or is
it better to stick to adderall as far as ADD/ADHD medicines go?

I've tried strattera on quite a few occasions. It has been really shitty for me. Usually I would feel very "cracked out" and just really jumpy. I never really got much of a high from the stuff. It didn't work very well at all for studying either. Supposedly it takes like a week or two before its supposed to work, so maybee thats the reason behind it. I really don't want to take that shit everyday for 2 weeks to get effects from it, especially if you don't actually have a script for it to get more. But in my opinion adderall is a much better choice.

Strattera doesn't even have positive effects on ADD patients. 80% of patients felt no significant differences. You could swallow thirty of them and not feel anything. It typically takes two weeks of continuous usage to feel a difference, and even then you only have a 20% chance of feeling anything (which doesn't include anything pleasant). Strattera is a marketing ploy, and little positive qualities have been found in clinical studies.

From what I've heard, Strattera started out as an antidepressant, similar to Wellbutrin, that didn't have a place on a market.

Yeah. Wellbutrin doesn't do much either. It doesn't work for ADD (although some dumbfuck "psychiatrists" still prescribe it), and it works scarcely for depression. Also, smoking marijuana while on it is reported to have disasterous effects.

Dude I was perscribed stratera before. It worked for the first couple of days gave me a strange buzz, but after that it didn't really do much of anything besides upset my stomach. I think that's the point of stratera it has next to no abouse potential. It's mean to replace medications such as adderall/ritalin. However in my opinion it doesn't work for add at all. The bottom line is that if you try and take more it will make you sick if you take less it won't work after a short while to do anything. Here's a link I found for you guys.

I was prescribed Strattera for ADHD/OCD a few years ago before I stopped taking such medications. The last bottle I had, my girlfriend and I downed all the pills (not sure of the dosage) and got a really mild, pleasant amphetamine-like buzz that turned over the next half day into a mild opiate warmth-feeling in the legs and chest. She basically slept for about a day straight, but it affected me a bit differently. I was super-concentrating and staring intently for hours at the hail, comletely entranced by it.
