The first phase was a double-blind crossover design of methylphenidate in the treatment of adult ADHD. The second phase consisted of an open-label extension trial of methylphenidate in adult ADHD. It was hypothesized that methylphenidate would prove more effective than placebo in treating ADHD symptoms during the first phase. It was also hypothesized that methylphenidate responders from the double-blind trial would continue to benefit from treatment in the second phase. Improvement would include both ADHD symptoms and social adjustment.
All patients received a single-blind week on placebo, followed by a double-blind random assignment crossover trial of methylphenidate and placebo, with each double-blind phase lasting two weeks. Subjects who experienced moderate or marked improvement on methylphenidate would be allowed to enter a long-term, open-label trial. ADHD symptom severity was measured monthly by a structured interview, the Wender-Reimherr Adult Attention Deficit Disorder Scale (WRAADDS), Clinical Global Impression - Improvement (CGI-I) and Global Assessment of Functioning (GAF). Social functioning was assessed by the clinician administered version of the Weissman Social Adjustment Scale (WSAS). Dosing was determined by clinical judgement, symptom improvement and AEs.

A methylphenidate derivative, DOPAMINE UPTAKE INHIBITOR and CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM STIMULANT that is used in the treatment of ATTENTION DEFICIT HYPERACTIVITY DISORDER.
A central nervous system stimulant used most commonly in the treatment of attention-deficit disorders in children and for narcolepsy. Its mechanisms appear to be similar to those of DEXTROAMPHETAMINE.
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.
