Attentrol 18 MG Description

Attentrol is a prescription medication. It is used to manage ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). The active component of Attentrol is Atomoxetine (18 mg). ADHD is a common, long-term

behavioural and developmental disorder commonly diagnosed in children and adolescents, lasting into adulthood. ADHD manifests as having trouble paying attention, controlling impulsive behaviour and/or being over-active. The treatment of ADHD is multifactorial. It should include a combination of counselling, lifestyle and environmental modifications, and medical therapy. The management of ADHD is often long term. Atomoxetine is a Nor-epinephrine reuptake inhibitor (NET inhibitor), a non-stimulant medication used to manage ADHD. The medication should be taken as recommended by the doctor. It should not be abruptly started or stopped, as it may cause a recurrence of symptoms. Taking the tablet at the same time every day is advisable for maximum efficacy.
