In brief: Variable

In phase 3 studies, about 2% of adults lost weight.
This was generally transient and was not sustained. Other side-effects prevent strattera (atomoxetine) from being considered a weight loss agent.

In brief: Diethylpropion

Diethylpropion is a prescription non-stimulant with similar mechanism of action that is actually indicated for appetite suppression, and is a lot cheaper than strattera (atomoxetine).
