Japan Approves Continued Use Of Strattera For AD/HD Patients Over 18

This article was originally published in PharmAsia News

Executive Summary

Japan's Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare June 15 notified Eli Lilly's Japan subsidiary it expanded labeling for Strattera (atomoxetine), allowing the drug to be used continuously for patients over 18 years. Currently, Strattera is indicated for attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder for patients aged 6 to 18. However, the change only applies to patients who have started taking the drug before the age of 18 and need to continue the treatment. Eli Lilly is conducting a Phase III trial of Strattera on adult patients. Many AD/HD patients in Japan have expressed a desire to continue the medication even after they turn 18.
