What is Strattera?
Strattera (pronounced stra-tair-a) is the first and only non-stimulant medication approved (FDA) by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of ADHD (attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder) in children, adolescents, and adults. Strattera (generic - atomoxetine) is a prescription drug

How does Strattera work?
Strattera is a norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor, a chemical messenger or neurotransmitter of certain nerve cells in the brain. This action increases the availability of norepinephrine, which is essential in regulating impulse control, improving organizational skills, and creating better focus. Strattera works differently from the other ADHD medications available. Traditional ADHD medications like Ritalin, Adderall, and Concerta are stimulant medications that work through the neurotransmitter dopamine.

Eli Lillyís warns about severe liver injury from Strattera
On December 17, 2004 The Wall Street Journal reported that the Lilly & Co. new drug Strattera, taken by both children and adults for ADHD, causes serious liver side effects in a small number of patients. The new warning advises of severe liver injury that may progress to liver failure, potentially resulting in death or the need for a liver transplant in some patients.

Two cases were reported to the FDA: The first case involved a 14 year-old boy who developed persistent flu-like symptoms after taking the appropriate dose of Strattera for four months. Blood tests done by the boy's doctor showed that his liver wasn't functioning properly. The boy was immediately taken off Strattera and recovered in several weeks without major liver injury.

However, the boy went back on Strattera a few months later because it seemed to alleviate his ADHD better than other drugs. A month later and hospitalized, he developed jaundice, another serious liver problem. His condition improved after he was taken off the drug.

When a patient develops a side effect again after going back on Strattera, it raises immediate red flags and increases the likelihood that the problem was caused by the drug.

A second case involved a 31-year-old woman who developed flu-like symptoms and jaundice after being on Strattera for a month. She recovered after discontinuing the drug.

Updated Strattera product information will include a warning to inform doctors and patients that in rare cases Strattera can cause severe liver injury. In both cases, the patientsí liver function recovered after discontinuing Strattera. This is in the short-term. Long-term damage is still an unknown at this time.
