Product Description

Strattera is involved in the inhibition of the selective reuptake of norepinephrine. The main component in this medication is atomoxetine.

 

Uses

 

Strattera helps in controlling the symptoms associated with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. The three main disorders associated with ADHD are inattention, hyperactivity, and increased impulsivity. Strattera is concerned with increasing the levels of attention in individuals diagnosed with ADHD. It is theorized that lowered levels of norepinephrine causes attention impairments in individuals. Strattera prevents the norepinephrine in the brain from being reabsorbed. This raises the level of norepinephrine present in the brain. This helps people to focus better and reduces the inattention symptoms of ADHD. It can also reduce the hyperactivity that is also associated with the disorder.

 

This medication works best when it is combined with a proper treatment plan. This includes the psychological and social aspects of the individual as well.
