I’m taking a low dose blood pressure med – 12.5 mg of Hydrochlorothiazide and 40 mg of Strattera and my blood pressure is now pretty good. I’m kind of overweight too, and since my mom had a massive stroke at a very young age (her blood pressure was high), that scared me into action. So at this point I’ve lost 20 lbs since early January. I’m hoping that as I lose a few more, I can go off the blood pressure meds. Before Strattera, I was taking 27 mg of Concerta (I think) along with the same b.p. med.

It’s an added benefit of Strattera that it’s reduced my appetite. It’s made it much easier to walk right past the chocolate and cookies and barely notice them.
