New interactions reported for Strattera

The Summary of Product Characteristics for the ADHD treatment Strattera (atomoxetine) has been updated to warn of the possible risk of QT prolongation if the drug is used with other drugs that prolong the QT interval, cause electrolyte disturbances or inhibit CYP2D6.

Also, because of the risk of seizures, caution should be exercised with the concomitant use of drugs known to lower the seizure threshold.
