Atomoxetine is a generic medication prescribed to treat attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children and adults. Unlike other ADHD drugs, Atomoxetine works differently because it is not a stimulant and is not addictive.
Doctors prescribe this medication to treat attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children over the age of six years and adults. Additionally, your doctor may include other measures, such as counselling and education, as part of an overall treatment program.
Atomoxetine belongs to a family of medicines called selective norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs), which work by increasing the amount of norepinephrine, a natural chemical in the brain. This helps to increase attention as well as decrease impulsiveness and hyperactivity in patients with ADHD.
Take the capsules orally as a whole. Do not open, chew or crush them. Generally, Atomoxetine should be started at the lowest possible dose and slowly adjusted to the lowest effective dose. Each person’s response varies widely. Your doctor will decide the correct dosage for you.
In teenagers and children over six years of age:
These may not be all the side effects of Atomoxetine 80mg.
Do not use Atomoxetine if you are taking medicine known as a monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) for depression. You should not take Atomoxetine if you have narrow angle glaucoma, cardiovascular disease, blood pressure problems, hardened arteries, a tumour of the adrenal gland or uncontrolled hyperthyroidism.
Discuss your medical history with your doctor, especially if you have mental problems or suicidal thoughts, any disorder of the blood vessels in the brain, blood pressure problems, an irregular heartbeat or seizures. If you have liver problems, you may need a lower dose. Tell your doctor if you are taking other medications, especially for depression or asthma.
Store Atomoxetine between 15°C and 30°C. Keep out of the reach of children.
Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a medical condition that is marked by three main types of persistent symptoms, which are inattention, hyperactivity and impulsiveness. ADHD affects millions of children (mostly males) and often continues into adulthood. Symptoms of inattention may include not listening, being easily distracted, not following through on tasks and making careless mistakes. Symptoms of hyperactivity and impulsiveness may include talking excessively, running around, fidgeting and interrupting others. In adults, symptoms of ADHD may include lack of organization, daydreaming, difficulty learning new things or lack of motivation. If the symptoms in adults are mostly attention problems (not hyperactivity), the condition is described as attention-deficit disorder (ADD). While many people experience these symptoms from time to time, they must be present for at least six months and cause problems at home, school, work or social relationships to make the diagnosis of ADHD. While the cause is not clear, there are certain risk factors, such as having a parent or sibling with ADHD or another mental health condition. Treatments may include medications, education, counselling and training.
