SKU: N/A Category:


Strattera, known by its generic name atomoxetine, is a non-stimulant medication primarily used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children, adolescents, and adults. Unlike many traditional ADHD medications, Strattera is not a stimulant but works by selectively inhibiting the reuptake of norepinephrine, a neurotransmitter, thereby increasing its availability in the brain. This action helps improve attention, concentration, and reduces impulsivity and hyperactivity in individuals with ADHD. Its non-stimulant nature makes it a preferred option for patients who may not respond well to stimulant medications or those with a history of substance misuse.
