Strattera Dosing Chart

based by weight and dosage factor

This is my supplement to the chart provided by Lilly. The FDA guidelines have recommended 1.2 mg/kg/day up to 80 mg, and then max after a month to 100mg. The FDA does not recommend dosages above 100 mg. For Adults, FDA Dosing Guide is Start at 40mg, Target at 80mg, Maximum 100 mg.

These  appear to be very conservative guidelines, especially since the poor metabolizers received the best results across the board. Clinical trials went to 1.8 mg/kg/day. There did not seem to be significant differences at the higher dosage  compared to the 1.2 mg/kg/day rate.

Prozac and Paxil inhibit the metabolism of Strattera. Thus it is probably best to use .5 mg/kg/day if on Prozac or Paxil, then increase slowly after 1 month.
