Q: Is there a substitute medication to Strattera? Insurance won't cover it in 2010.

Just need to know if there is a generic in particular that can be substituted for Strattera?  I am so glad I found this site.  I don't feel so alone now. Smile

Thank you for your question and welcome to I am glad you found this site and no longer feel so alone. I hope you take some time to look around, there is a lot of information on living with ADHD. Please also, post a blog and tell us about you and your story, share some of what you have learned by answering other posts and questions. We are glad you have joined us.


As far as your question, Strattera is under a U.S. patent until 2017, so no generic is available in the U.S., although generics are available in other countries.


There are many different medications for ADHD and you may be able to find another medication that works for you. You can find additional information:

Thank you for your kind reply to my question.  I have made an appointment with my doctor to find an answer.  I am a senior, and finally know why I am a little different. Smile  I have purchased an Medicare supplement, but still worried about Part D.
