Strattera (Atomoxetine Hydrochloride) Medicine

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a condition characterized by an inability to sit still, difficulty paying attention, and difficulty controlling behavior. ADHD can be treated with Strattera® (atomoxetine hydrochloride), a medicine that is the first nonstimulant product approved for this condition. It comes in capsule form, and is taken either once or twice a day.
 
It is not entirely clear how Strattera works as an ADHD treatment; however, the medicine is known to affect levels of a certain chemical in the brain called norepinephrine. This product is not a controlled substance; therefore, the rules for prescribing it and dispensing it are less strict. This is also an important difference between Strattera and other ADHD medications.
