Started taking 40mg Strattera yesterday. At first my hearing got sensitive, I was kinda buzzing a little and felt like barfing. It reminded me of what I felt like for the first 30 minutes when I took shrooms in college. I had something to eat, even though I wasn’t hungry and the nausea subsided.
 
I figured I could live with it until last night at 2:30am and I’m talking to my wife in bed and she said “let’s go”……so I could hardly get it up to get the condom on. This never happens to me. Then with some effort, I got it on and before I could get it in, the fucker died. I got it up again but it was really soft. I got it in and it hardened up a little and died 5 min later. My wife wasn’t concerned but I was really bummed out. The next morning I jerked off to see it I could get it to work, with much effort I had a dull pain with orgasm. Ejacualtion preceeded the sensation by about 4 seconds.    
 
I am proud of my manhood. This was a major disappointment as the concentration effect was noticable right away. I am also taking Celexa and had a loss in libido but I bounced back. On Strattera, I’m fairly confident I’m not going to get a erection I am going to be satisfied with.
 
Celexa reduced my sexual capabilty by 10% It was worth it because I felt emotionally closer to my wife and the overall emotional intimacy made the sex act more satisfying. Strattera just makes me more alert for doing work stuff. In conjunction with the Celexa, It caused a reduction of sexual capability by 95%. No thanks.  
 
I’m going to stay with it for 30 days and decide if it’s worth the high cost and horrible side effects. I really have a lot of identity and quiet satifaction from my manhood and I really need to decide if the trade-off is worth it.

You started too high, thats part of the problem.
 
See http://www.crazymeds.org/strattera.html to see how you SHOULD have been titrated, and other useful information.

According to the dosing information, I am taking the correct dose. 40mg per day. I am 93kg * .5mg = 46mg/day. My unit is cold, purple and shrinkage has taken a toll. Seven out of 172 men reported ED vs. one on Placebo? I don’t buy it.

The weight based information is for CHILDREN. Otherwise I’d never have been NEAR my final dose of 40mg–titrated UP. Adults have different needs because they metabolize differently.
 
Again, see the crazymeds page for PROPER titration. It doesn’t affect sex so much if you don’t start too high, AND it doesn’t make your brain feel so weird.
