Discussions that mention strattera

Sleep Disorders board

My husband, who takes many medications causing drowsiness for chronic pain, uses Strattera. He tried Provigil and it didn't make any difference. The Strattera makes him more alert and able to concentrate. It does not seem to make him sleep any less (still 10-12 hours a night), but he is more alert when he is awake. He takes 160 mg a day. He also has sleep apnea, but won't used the mask because it leaks. I think that he might sleep less per day if the apnea were under control, but I don't know that for sure.
