FDA Approves Strattera(R) for Maintenance of ADHD in Children and Adolescents
Date:5/9/2008

Strattera was generally well-tolerated. The most common side effects reported in the study were headache and the common cold (nasopharyngitis). In the study, the mean final dose of Strattera was approximately 1.54 mg/kg/day after 12 months and 18 months treatment.

About ADHD

ADHD is the most common psychiatric disorder to appear in childhood. If left untreated, ADHD can have long-term effects on a child's emotional well-being and social skills, like making friends or doing well at school or at work.(2) ADHD can also have lifelong consequences, including poor peer relations, poor academic and work performance and increased risk-taking behaviors, such as substance abuse.(3)

Improved efficiency in the norepinephrine system is associated with improvement in symptoms of ADHD.(4) Since its first approval in the United States in 2002, more than 5 million patients have taken Strattera worldwide. It has been studied in more than 6,000 patients in clinical trials, some for as long as three years.
