Strattera - The New ADHD Medication

Strattera - The New ADHD Medication
By Jeannine Virtue

The newest ADHD medication Strattera (atomoxetine) is expected to hit the pharmacy shelves this month to much ado. What separates Strattera (atomoxetine) from the rest of the ADHD medications pack is that Strattera (atomoxetine) is the first non-stimulant medication FDA-approved for Attention Deficit Disorder. Strattera (atomoxetine) is not a controlled substance under the Controlled Substance Act, which translates to the convenience of phone-in refills and less prescription hassles at the pharmacy. 

Strattera (atomoxetine) is an oral capsule prescribed in a once or twice daily dose, which also eliminates the need for school children to medicate during the school day. And, Strattera (atomoxetine) is the only ADHD medication FDA-approved for adults. 

But before you knock on your doctor's door asking for a prescription, there are a few things you should know about this new ADHD medication. Although Strattera (atomoxetine) is a non-stimulant ADHD medication, it still poses many side effects consistent with the side effects of other ADHD medications - and a few new ones that adults might find less than pleasant.

Common Strattera (atomoxetine) Side Effects include (but not limited to):

  •  Problems sleeping/Insomnia
  •  Dry mouth
  •  Decreased appetite
  •  Weight loss 
  •  Upset stomach 
  •  Constipation 
  •  Nausea and/or vomiting 
  •  Dizziness 
  •  Tiredness 
  •  Mood swings 
  •  Ear infection 
  •  Influenza 
  •  Irritability

Sexual side effects (in adults studied): 

  •  Decreased libido 
  •  Ejaculatory problems
  •  Impotence 
  •  Urination problems 
  •  Painful menstrual periods

The following, though rare, have also been reported: 

  •  Strattera (atomoxetine) can cause potentially serious allergic reactions.

  • Strattera (atomoxetine) can increase heart rate and blood pressure. 

  • Strattera (atomoxetine) can also worsen the conditions of high blood pressure and heart disease. 

  • Strattera (atomoxetine) should not be taken at the same time as, or within two weeks of taking, a monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitor. Patients with narrow angle glaucoma should not take Strattera (atomoxetine).

    You should alert the prescribing physician of the following condition before beginning Strattera (atomoxetine); 

    •  Current or past depression, psychosis or other mental conditions 
    •  Alcohol or drug abuse 
    •  Heart disease 
    •  High blood pressure 
    •  Epilepsy or seizure disorders 
    •  Liver disease or kidney disease 
    •  Pregnancy, nursing or plans to become pregnant

    Strattera (atomoxetine) makers Eli Lilly and Company conducted six placebo-controlled studies in children, adolescents and adults for FDA submission. ...
