Strattera Oral Solution (atomoxetine) is used to alleviate symptoms of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in children and adults. The medication provides several key benefits:
Most patients experience significant improvements in learning, work performance, and interpersonal relationships when these symptoms are managed.
Advantages of Strattera Oral Solution
Strattera Oral Solution is, as the name suggests, the fluid version of regular Strattera tablets. It is ideal for patients who are unable or---as may be the case with children---unwilling to swallow whole tablets.
The medication in Strattera Oral Solution is a Selective Norepinephrine Reuptake Inhibitor (SNRI). Unlike the more widely-recognized ADHD treatments, such as Ritalin or Adderall, SNRIs are not stimulants, not addictive, and do not produce withdrawal symptoms when treatment stops. Other advantages include:
Note that, while stimulants like Adderall are also used for narcolepsy, non-stimulant ADHD treatments like Strattera Oral Solution are not beneficial for this condition.
Strattera Oral Solution comes in only one dosage strength; 4mg per ml of fluid. A measuring device is included with each bottle. Treatment with the oral solution is very similar to treatment with regular tablets; in otherwise healthy adults:
Dosage will vary significantly in younger patients, and to a lesser extent in patients with other major medical conditions, taking other medications, and other personal variables.
Some patients notice improvements in the first couple weeks of treatment, but it will take 4 to 6 weeks for full benefits to be seen. During this time, particularly for younger patients, regular doctor checkups may be scheduled to ensure the medication is working and monitor for any developing adverse effects. Treatment may continue indefinitely as long as it provides benefit.
Warnings & Adverse Reactions

In most cases side effects are mild and may stop occurring as the body adjusts to the first few weeks of treatment. Most commonly reported are:
The above side effects are not cause for concern unless severe enough to be disruptive.
A small percentage of patients under age 25 may find Strattera Oral Solution increases suicidal thoughts or inclinations. These symptoms usually develop in the first few weeks of treatment, if they develop at all. Younger patients---especially if there is any history of depression---should be monitored closely at the start of treatment.
