Atomoxetine (ATX) is a selective norepinephrine (NE) reuptake inhibitor that was for the Atypical Antipsychotics
approved as a treatment for ADHD in the United States in November 2002. It was (Second Generation

What is of particular interest about ATX is that it has a 24–hour effect on ADHD signs and symptoms (albeit diminishing gradually towards the following morning)on a once–daily morning dosing schedule. Unlike the psychostimulants it is not a New Research

ATX is equally effective against inattention and hyperactivity/impulsivity. This clinical effect has been demonstrated in children, adolescents and adults; withADHD alone and with a range of comorbidities.
In children and adolescents, teachers and parents were in agreement about the HANDOUT INCLUDED:

Beyond the first–line criteria for ADHD, ATX has proven superior to placebo in improving CHQ measures of self–esteem, psychosocial functioning, parent impactand family activity. The improvements in family–related parameters are linked toATX’s continuing effect into the evening.
