Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (4 months ago):

  • I have state 3 kidney dysfunction & wonder if these med's are OK.


  • From this study (5 years ago):

  • Started taking lexapro the same time I started strattera. After about a month I noticed great improvement with the strattera. As far as I can tell, the lexapro relieved my depression and anxiety but it is now causing extreme lethargy.
