Dexedrine to strattera?

Patient : Ive been on Dexedrine 15mg (instant release), twice a day for one month now and just yesterday, a walk-in doctor told me I shouldn't be on Dexedrine and switched me to Strattera. I took my first pill of 25mg (along with the 40mg of Prozac Ive been taking) this morning and I feel terrible. Is it a withdrawal effect of the Dexedrine or what? I feel like this was a bad idea as the Dexedrine was helping in all areas except for motivation. Any help?
