Journal of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, v48 n5 p511 May 2009
Data from six randomized controlled trials in the U.S. reveal that 47 percent of patients aged six to 18 years showed a much improved clinical response to atomoxetine as a treatment for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder while 40 percent did not have a response. Augmenting or switching treatment in non-responders by week 4 is suggested.
