In brief: Strattera (atomoxetine) and Zoloft

The primary issue is that zoloft raises blood levels of strattera (atomoxetine) in rapid metabolizers , increasing the strattera (atomoxetine) 3-4 fold in the blood stream. Therefore i would say that 300-400 mg of zoloft is reasonable, but the dose of strattera (atomoxetine) should probably be 18 mg per day to 25 mg per day max.
