ADHD Home > Strattera Capsules

Strattera® (atomoxetine hydrochloride) is a prescription medicine used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in adults, teenagers, and children. It was the first nonstimulant medication approved for the treatment of ADHD.
Strattera comes in the form of a capsule and is available in several strengths. It is normally taken once or twice a day. Although it's not entirely clear how the drug works, it is known to affect norepinephrine, a chemical in the brain.
