What is atomoxetine?

Atomoxetine is an oral medication used to treat attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). It improves attention and reduces restlessness in children, adolescents and adults with ADHD. Atomoxetine belongs to a group of drugs called selective norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs). These drugs increase the levels of norepinephrine in the brain.
