My 17 yr old special needs daughter has just strattera after 10yrs on Ritalin

Can anyone tell me does Straterra help ODD symptoms of ADHD?  My 17 year old special needs daughter has been diagnosed ADHD with ODD for 10yrs, she has the other Dyspraxia, Dyslexia etc extras as well.  Recently at a hospital appointment it was decided to put her on Strattera after being on first normal Ritalin then about 7 years ago Concerta, the goal being she eventually, hopefully will be able to just be on Strattera to help her and GOODBYE RITALIN!!!! My daughter's ADHD would'nt be so bad if she didn't have such bad ODD.
