To look at the cognitive effects of abilify in children with a primary diagnosis of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. To examine the safety, effectiveness and tolerability of abilify in children with a primary diagnosis of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
This will be a prospective, open-label, 6-week trial of APZ in outpatient children 8-12 years of age with a primary diagnosis of ADHD free of other major psychopathology. The six-week treatment phase will be proceeded by a 1-3 week screening phase.
The study cohort will consist of 10 children with ADHD combined type and 10 children with ADHD predominantly inattentive type who complete the study.
Cognitive measures will be assessed prior to APZ therapy and after 6 weeks of APZ treatment.
Safety assessments and measures of ADHD symptomatology will be collected prior to and during APZ therapy.
While receiving APZ treatment, patients will be seen at baseline, Week 1,2,3,4, and 6.

A behavior disorder originating in childhood in which the essential features are signs of developmentally inappropriate inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. Although most individuals have symptoms of both inattention and hyperactivity-impulsivity, one or the other pattern may be predominant. The disorder is more frequent in males than females. Onset is in childhood. Symptoms often attenuate during late adolescence although a minority experience the full complement of symptoms into mid-adulthood. (From DSM-IV)

A dextroamphetamine drug precursor that also functions as a CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM STIMULANT and DOPAMINE UPTAKE INHIBITOR and is used in the treatment of ATTENTION DEFICIT HYPERACTIVITY DISORDER.
The d-form of AMPHETAMINE. It is a central nervous system stimulant and a sympathomimetic. It has also been used in the treatment of narcolepsy and of attention deficit disorders and hyperactivity in children.
