Strattera Withdrawal And Detox
Strattera is a medication that helps treat attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder or ADHD. Beginning treatment with Strattera can help ADHD patients pay attention, stay focused, concentrate and stop fidgeting.
Just like starting any new medication, you may experience side effects after you begin taking Strattera. Common Strattera side effects include upset stomach, nausea, vomiting, constipation, tiredness, loss of appetite, weight loss, dry mouth, dizziness, drowsiness, a rise in blood pressure, trouble sleeping and decreased sexual ability or desire. In some cases, female patients have also experienced menstrual cramps or irregular periods after starting Strattera treatment. Be sure to notify your doctor if any of the aforementioned common Strattera side effects get worse over time or persist.
In some rare cases, Strattera patients have experienced serious side effects. Serious Strattera side effects include difficulty urinating, unusual or irregular heartbeat, fainting, numbness and tingling. Tell your doctor right away if you notice these serious side effects of Strattera treatment. In very rare instances, using Strattera can lead to liver disease. Get medical help as soon as possible if you begin to experience liver damage symptoms such as dark urine, persistent nausea, persistent vomiting, loss of appetite, stomach or abdominal pain, and yellowing skin or eyes.
If you are no longer interested in taking Strattera, make sure you set up a meeting with your doctor to discuss your options. Do not adjust your Strattera dose or treatment schedule without your doctor’s supervision. In addition, Strattera should never be stopped cold turkey, as this can produce unwanted withdrawal symptoms. Typically, if you no longer want to use Strattera, your doctor will lower your Strattera dose gradually over time so your body can adjust to less and less of the medication.

Most people who have stopped using Strattera experience very minimal withdrawal symptoms. This is because Strattera specifically affects the norepinephrine neurotransmitter. Medications that affect this neurotransmitter have fewer withdrawal symptoms than medications that affect other neurotransmitters such as to serotonin or dopamine.
