Negative Effects of Strattera
Adults, teens, and children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) may find Strattera® (atomoxetine hydrochloride) an effective medication for their condition. This drug probably works to relieve ADHD symptoms by affecting the levels of a certain chemical in the brain, although its exact mechanism is unknown.
Although most people have no problems with Strattera, negative side effects are possible. In clinical studies, common reactions included nausea, dry mouth, and headaches. In addition, some people are more at risk for problems than others, such as people with congestive heart failure, glaucoma, or Raynaud's phenomenon.
If you experience possible side effects with Strattera, it's important to contact your healthcare provider for proper diagnosis and treatment.
