Yes: Weight loss in one of the side effect due to this medication. For some people, this may be a good thing. For many people, however, unintended weight loss can be a problem. For example, weight loss can be a problem in growing children.

Weight loss: Strattera (atomoxetine) does not usually cause weight loss.

Not generally though it can cause nausea and stomach upset. Way to avoid that is to take it with a good meal.
