one of the side affects of strattera is depression. "Our clinical experience [with Strattera] has been that mood destabilization is a much more prevalent risk than was observed" I googled both and Strattera seems to be the one linked to worst things Dexadrine cause dizziness insomnia and others buts Depression is not listed. I hope this helps. You should talk to you doctor about being switched off of Strattera
