Who Is Strattera for?

Strattera is primarily used for treating ADHD, a disorder that affects many who may have had it all their lives or only started recently getting symptoms. For someone with ADHD, it can be challenging to get through the day, especially if you have work and are engaging with various people. ADHD causes a person to be easily distracted in a way they cannot control, and this is the sort of thing that can cause a person’s work to suffer. Especially under work conditions, ADHD is not something that is necessarily only affecting one person.

Outside of work, a person with ADHD might find it hard to stay focused on friends and family. They might not want to engage with friends because they know they will not be able to dedicate the right amount of time when participating with others. Because of this, they may prefer to spend time alone, but even then, they can become frustrated by their behavior. ADHD is something that is highly detrimental to one’s health, and sometimes those with the disorder do not want to admit it. This is not something anyone ever has to deal with alone, but it can be difficult. This is why drugs like Strattera exist: so that users can take control of their life and get back to feeling better about themselves and their situations.

How Does Strattera Work?

By responsibly taking Strattera, a user will be able to get back to living a more productive life, while also being able to engage with others. The drug is able to help the brain get back to a point where it is able to maintain focus and help the user stay alert. A brain under ADHD is unable to satisfy a need for activity; this is what causes a person with the disorder to be so distracted, as the brain is desperately looking for ways to stay distracted.

Due to its inability to be satisfied, the mind causes the person to stay unfocused, resulting in frustration. Strattera is able to help the brain make sure it is being stimulated, which can help the brain work with neurotransmitters that allow the mind to remain calm and focused. This then helps make the user stay concentrated, focused, and alert.

Strattera Side-Effects

Strattera is an effective prescription drug, as it has been shown to be helpful for those with ADHD. However, for those interested in being prescribed Strattera, it is also important to understand the side effects that are involved. Side-effects are fairly common with prescription drugs, and even though many know this, it is always important to understand what they are.

As with other prescription drugs, some of these side-effects are more common than others, so we will start with the most common:

  • Nausea
  • Dry mouth

These are among the most reported, which should not come as too much of a surprise, considering how prescription drugs can sometimes make users feel. Some of the others include :

which can be less reported but just as likely.

Among the least common side-effects are

It is always important to remember that, as unlikely as some of these side-effects can appear, they are still probable. There are also, of course, much less common side-effects that have been known to affect at least a small portion of those who have taken Strattera. These can include palpitations, migraines, liver problems, fainting, and thoughts of suicide. While some of these can be much more serious than other common side-effects, it is important to remember that they are quite rare.

Other Strattera Risks

Some risks that are not widely advertised are related to tolerance and dependence, which can lead to addiction and overdose. Drugs such as Strattera can be easily abused, which can lead to the previously mentioned side effects but can also lead to tolerance. If your body becomes tolerant to the drugs you’re taking, you may feel a need to increase your dosage. This can lead to you becoming more dependent on the medicine, which can turn into flown-blown attention for some.

From there, if you really go overboard, it can result in taking so many pills that you overdose. This is a serious problem that affects a percentage of those who have taken prescription pills in the past. For these reasons, it is vital not to become addicted to your prescription medication. This is also why it is not recommended that those with addictive personalities, or who have a history of addiction, take Strattera or similar medication.

While Strattera can be extremely beneficial for those with ADHD, it can also be easy to abuse if you are not careful. For these reasons, it is important that you take care of yourself and take your medication responsibly if you decide to go through with getting prescribed.
