In brief: Try not to
Strattera (atomoxetine) is a drug that develops a level in your blood.
This level will also bathe the baby. This level will get into breast milk. Granted only small amounts may affect fetus and breast milk, but why take the chance.

In brief: No
Although there are no studies documenting strattera (atomoxetine) use in pregnant women, there are studies showing an increased risk of miscarriage and pregnancy loss in animals.
Therefore, it appears that avoiding strattera (atomoxetine) in pregnancy or using other medications makes good sense.
