Abstract

Atomoxetine (Strattera™ Eli Lilly & Co.) is a highly selective noradrenaline reuptake inhibitor and the first nonstimulant medication to be approved for the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Currently, nine published clinical trials have documented the safety and efficacy of atomoxetine in the treatment of children, adolescents and adults with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and data presented throughout the past year at national scientific meetings has further addressed its utility. This article reviews the available information on atomoxetine, accompanied by a discussion of its clinical use.
