Atomoxetine Decreases Mitochondrial Biogenesis, Fission and Fusion In Human Neuron-like Cells But Does Not Alter Antioxidant Defences

Atomoxetine (ATX) is a presynaptic norepinephrine transporter (NET) inhibitor widely prescribed for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) due to its low abuse potential and absence of psychostimulant effects. While NET inhibition is implicated in the clinical response, several additional pharmacoactivities may contribute to clinical efficacy or unwanted side effects.
