Strattera for Children

Some of the symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children include:
 
  • Problems paying attention in the classroom
  • Trouble sitting still (hyperactivity)
  • Behavior problems.
     
If your child has been diagnosed with ADHD, a good treatment plan will start with lifestyle changes that address his or her social, educational, and mental health needs. If lifestyle changes alone are not effective, medication may be necessary.
 
Strattera® (atomoxetine hydrochloride) is a drug commonly prescribed for childhood ADHD. Because it is not likely to be abused, this medication has an advantage over some of the other medicines used for ADHD.
 
Strattera has not been adequately studied in younger children, so it is currently approved for use only in children over the age of six years old.
