Problems urinating 4 hours after starting Strattera -- any hope for me?

Just diagnosed with adult ADD (known that I had for a long time), was very excited about trying Strattera. I'm a 28 year old healthy white male.

Four hours after my first dose (40 mg) I went to the bathroom to urinate and nothing came out. After forcing I was able to get some flow but it stopped frequently and was a struggle. I checked the Strattera literature and sure enough it's a listed side effect.

The next two times (8 and 12 hours after first dose) I urinated were slightly better but still a problem. I have never had any problems like this before.

Is there any hope that I could take this drug? Should I try another drug (which one?) or can I cut my Strattera dosage, etc.? Might the problem go away in a few weeks even I continue to take Strattera?

My current plan is to discontinue usage immediately -- any advice on substitutes or other plans of action would be appreciated.

Hi Mason,

It seems that this isn't an unusual occurence in adult males. I'm bumping up the thread called "Strattera- Others W. Adult Male Side Effects" for you to read over.

I'm female so I can't offer too much advice!
