Were you looking for information about Strattera? Stretera is a common misspelling of Strattera.
Strattera® (atomoxetine hydrochloride) was the first nonstimulant medication licensed for the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The medicine is used to treat ADHD in children, teenagers, and adults. Part of a class of drugs called selective norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors, Strattera works by affecting a chemical in the brain called norepinephrine.
In clinical studies, children and teenagers with ADHD who took Strattera had significant behavior improvements, compared to those children and teenagers who did not take it. Studies have also shown Strattera to be effective at treating symptoms of adult ADHD. The medication comes in a capsule form that should be taken by mouth once or twice a day. Among the available strengths are 10 mg, 25 mg, 60 mg, and 100 mg.
