Atomoxetine (Strattera) is the ADHD medication that is classified as an SNRI, which stands for serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor. It works by blocking the reuptake of both norepinephrine and serotonin in the brain, which can help improve attention and reduce impulsivity in individuals with ADHD. Unlike stimulant medications, atomoxetine is not classified as a controlled substance and does not have the same potential for abuse or addiction. It may be a good option for individuals who have a history of substance abuse or who are unable to tolerate or do not respond well to stimulant medications.
