questions about strattera

I just had a few question about strattera. How long does this stay in system? Is it OK to quit cold turkey? and how long does it take for person to feel effects after taking first dose?

Thanks

Strattera stays in the system for quite a while - much longer than the stimulants. It is for this reason that it is able to attain "steady state plasma levels" which is why it doesn't matter what time of day Strattera is taken.

You may or may not feel any positive effects from the first doses. You probably will, however, feel the side effects. It can take weeks of steady dosing to see a real benefit from Strattera.

Like other psychotropic drugs, I would NOT quit it cold turkey. Ask your doctor for weaning instructions.

Hope this helps...
