Atomoxetine

Why is Atomoxetine Used?

Atomoxetine (Axepta) is a common type of medication offered to help reduce the symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADD or ADHD). This medication works by helping to regulate the chemicals in the brain. It shouldn't be given to any child under 6 years of age.

Atomoxetine Dosage and Usage Instructions

It can be difficult to regulate the levels of chemicals in the brain. As a result the dose of Atomoxetine may need to be altered several times to get it balanced. This medication isn't intended for the long term use. It is often recommended to be used in conjunction with behavior modification therapy. It is usually only taken once a day, in the morning and will last all day. It should be taken with food and water to reduce the chances of nausea occurring.

Atomoxetine Precautions

Anyone taking MAOIs (monoamine oxidase inhibitors) shouldn't use this type of medication. Anyone with heart problems shouldn't take Atomoxetine. The use of it has been linked to heart attacks and even death in both youth and adults. Anyone with glaucoma isn't a good candidate for the use of Atomoxetine.

Some individuals experience severe depression or thoughts of suicide when they start to take Atomoxetine.
