Stratera for fatigue

Hi, my Dr. just prescribed me stratera for my fatigue. I have fibromyalgia and Addison's Disease (adrenal gland problems). I was wondering if anyone else has tried this for fatigue and if so how it worked out for them? I'm going to start taking it on Sunday and I'm supposed to take it everyday. I currently take Provigil but it has gotten to where it doesn't work (like right now I am nodding off while trying to key this in ).

Thanks so much for any input.

CJ

Re: Stratera for fatigue

Are you taking hydrocortisone or something for your adrenals? atomoxetine is a potent NRI but will not work cortisol-wise. Too much adrenaline/NE and not enough cortisol might not give you full satisfaction.
