How Does Strattera (Atomoxetine) Work?

Strattera affects how much norepinephrine is taken up by receptors in your brain. Atomoxetine helps to restore the balance of norepinephrine, a neurotransmitter. This improved balance helps reduce symptoms of ADHD.

What Are the Associated Dosages and Treatments for Strattera?

The dosage of Strattera will vary based on a patient’s age, size, and symptoms. Typically, adults start on a dose of 40 mg taken once a day for at least three to four days. Then, the dosage usually increases to 80 mg, either taken once a day or split into two 40 mg doses. After two to three weeks, patients may then be increased to a dosage of 100 mg per day. 

Always follow your prescribing doctor’s dosage instructions and check with them before changing your dose.
