ADD Medicine: Adderall vs Strattera.

In the first head-to-head comparison of Strattera (atomoxetine hydrochloride) against other ADHD drugs, Strattera failed the test. The results of a study, presented at the annual meeting of the American Psychiatric Association in May 2004, indicate that children treated with Adderall showed greater improvements in their behavior and attention than those using Strattera.

The three-week study used 200 children aged 6 to 12 that were already diagnosed with ADHD. The children were randomly assigned once-daily treatment of either the extended-release Adderall formulation or Strattera. The children were then monitored in three weekly sessions in a simulated classroom environment.

The children’s behavior was measured by a standard ADHD vs ADD assessment tool every 2 1/2 hours during each session. The doses of both drugs were increased weekly according to manufacturer recommendations. Researchers saw improvements with Strattera during the first week of the study but those effects did not continue during the second or third week. The improvements were consistent across each of the study days in children taking Adderall.

Researchers stated "significant differences" in the effectiveness of Adderall vs Strattera, stating that the children who received Adderall were better behaved, better focused and that the effects of Adderall lasted longer. Children taking Adderall also performed better on a timed math test while researchers did not see those improvements in children taking Strattera.

The research was funded by Shire Pharmaceuticals Group, the maker of Adderall XR. Not surprisingly, Strattera maker Eli Lilly & Co. questioned the study, stating that the length of the study was not long enough to judge the full benefits of how Strattera works and that the study’s findings were inconsistency with previous research conducted by Eli Lilly.

Strattera and Adderall side effects were both noted during the study. Adderall is a mixture of four amphetamine salts. Strattera is the first non-stimulant medication FDA-approved to treat ADHD. Strattera was approved in November 2002 and was available to the public beginning in January 2003. It is best to seek out an Adderall alternative for safe symptom reduction.

Potentially serious side effects Adderall includes are allergic reactions, hallucinations, abnormal or confused behavior, irregular heartbeat and/or very high blood pressure. Less serious but common Adderall side effects include restlessness, anxiety, nervousness, insomnia, headache, weight loss, dizziness and impotence. Adderall used over extended periods of time, it can cause dependence. A person taking Adderall can experience withdrawal with sudden discontinue of use.

Sexual side effects, mood swings, constipation, nausea or vomiting, decreased appetite, upset stomach, dizziness, tiredness, insomnia, an increase in heart rate and blood pressure are common side effects of Strattera.

The Attention Deficit Disorder Help Center maintains its health and safety stance of trying any and all available ADHD remedies and alternatives to ADHD medication before resorting to drug therapy. Attend, a neurological support supplement, is a highly effective alternative to conventional ADHD drug medication like Ritalin Vyvanse Adderall and Atomoxetine hcl.
