Q. What is the significance of the new warnings about suicide risk with Strattera?
A. In September 2005, the FDA directed the manufacturer of atomoxetine (Strattera), a new treatment marketed in 2002 for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), to warn consumers that suicidal thinking may increase in a small number of children taking the drug.
