just to set the record straight...

Strattera needs to be taken regularly and for a prolonged period in order to be effective. Unlike stimulant meds for ADHD, it does not make sense to take Strattera p.r.n.

However, stopping the drug all at once is NOT a problem. The following statements are quoted verbatim from Lilly's official "prescribing information" monograph [http://pi.lilly.com/us/strattera-pi.pdf]:

"Atomoxetine can be discontinued without being tapered."

"There was no evidence of symptom rebound or adverse events suggesting a drug-discontinuation or withdrawal syndrome."
