Strattera Treatment in Adults With Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Not Otherwise Specified (ADHD NOS)

2014-08-27 03:50:26 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This is an open-label study with daily doses up to 144 mg/day Strattera (atomoxetine) in the treatment of adults with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder not otherwise specified. The researchers hypothesize ADHD symptomatology in adults with ADHD NOS will be responsive to Strattera treatment and Strattera treatment (in doses of up to 120 mg/day or 1.5 mg/kg/day, whichever is less) in adults with ADHD NOS will be safe and well tolerated.

Description

Strattera (atomoxetine) is a non-stimulant specific norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of child, adolescent and adult patients with ADHD. It is possible Strattera could be a viable alternative treatment for ADHD individuals. The purpose of this study is to assess the effectiveness, safety and tolerability of Strattera in adults with ADHD NOS. If this initial study shows promise, we will follow-up with a randomized clinical trial.

The study includes:

1. use of a six-week design to document the response rate,

2. weekly assessments to document the impact of Strattera NOS on functional capacities,

3. careful assessment of safety and tolerability.

Primary outcomes measure symptom reduction.
