Basic Information On Strattera
Strattera belongs to the category of medicines known as "selective norepinephrine reuptake" inhibitors. It is used to treat attention-deficit/h2yperactivity disorder (ADHD). It is not a stimulant. It is part of a complete treatment program which includes other complementary measures like social, educational and psychological treatment. It helps control the symptoms of ADHD. It increases the level of those chemicals in nerves and brain which cause hyperactivity and impulse control. It provides relief from symptoms and regular symptom improvements thereafter, such as improvement in behavior and attention span. The Strattera drug should not be prescribed for patients who show primary psychiatric disorders and others symptoms secondary to environmental factors. It is prescribed only in cases where remedial measures alone are not sufficient and the symptoms are severe.
Precautions / Side Effects Of Strattera

Using Strattera before MAO inhibitor has cleared from the body can cause life threatening side effects. You must inform your doctor if you have congenital heart disorder or other heart problems.
