ADHD Home > Strattera Withdrawal
Strattera® (atomoxetine hydrochloride) is a prescription medication used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Strattera was the first non-stimulant medication approved to treat ADHD. Unlike stimulant ADHD medications, this drug is unlikely to cause withdrawal symptoms.
In fact, there is no need to slowly decrease the dose when stopping Strattera; the medication can usually be stopped altogether without causing any problems. However, you should always talk with your healthcare provider before stopping any medication, including Strattera.
Of course, your ADHD symptoms may quickly return once you stop taking Strattera. Although these are not symptoms of withdrawal from Strattera, they can be just as bothersome. Talk with your healthcare provider if you are noticing any symptoms after stopping Strattera.
