The primary outcome measure for both studies was mean ADHD Rating Scale (ADHD RS) total score. For study 1 (N = 122), decreases in ADHD RS total scores were not significantly different between treatment groups (mean change [SD]: continued same dose, -8.9 [11.2]; high dose, -9.8 [13.1]; p = .595). Likewise, for study 2 (N = 125), treatment groups did not differ (mean change [SD]: continued same dose, -6.2 [12.2]; high dose, -8.9 [10.0], p =.110). Tolerability was not significantly different between the continued same-dose and high-dose groups.

Atomoxetine is a noradrenaline-specific reuptake inhibitor used clinically for the treatment of childhood and adult attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Studies in human volunteers and patient groups have shown that atomoxetine improves stop-signal reaction time (SSRT) performance, an effect consistent with a reduction in motor impulsivity. However, ADHD is a heterogeneous disorder and it is of interest to determine whether atomoxetine is similarly effective against other forms of impulsivity, as well as the attentional impairment present in certain subtypes of ADHD. The present study examined the effects of atomoxetine on impulsivity using an analogous SSRT task in rats and two additional tests of impulsivity; delay discounting of reward and the five-choice serial reaction time task (5CSRTT), the latter providing an added assessment of sustained visual attention. Atomoxetine produced a significant dose-dependent speeding of SSRT. In addition, atomoxetine produced a selective, dose-dependent decrease in premature responding on the 5CSRTT. Finally, on the delay-discounting task, atomoxetine significantly decreased impulsivity by increasing preference for the large-value reward across increasing delay. These findings conclusively demonstrate that atomoxetine decreases several distinct forms of impulsivity in rats. The apparent contrast of these effects with stimulant drugs such as amphetamine and methylphenidate, which generally act to increase impulsivity on the 5CSRTT, may provide new insights into the mechanisms of action of stimulant and nonstimulant drugs in ADHD.

Free drug samples frequently are given to children. We sought to describe characteristics of free sample recipients, to determine whether samples are given primarily to poor and uninsured children, and to examine potential safety issues.
A number of medication and psychologic treatment options for adults with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder have become available during the past 5 years, while others are under investigation. This review describes the safety and effectiveness of the stimulants (i.e., methylphenidate and dexedrine), and particularly the newer long-acting stimulants (i.e., Concerta) and Adderall XR) in the treatment of this population. Some nonstimulant/nonantidepressants, particularly atomoxetine, have also been shown to improve attention deficit hyperactivity disorder symptoms. Combination treatment of stimulants and antidepressants require more study with regard to safety and efficacy. Psychosocial interventions (e.g., cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness training and cognitive remediation) can also benefit adults with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Cognitive behavioral therapy combined with medication is more effective than either intervention alone, especially for addressing the emotional and functional aspects of peoples lives and thus improving occupational, interpersonal and emotional outcomes.

We conducted a systematic review and aimed to answer the following clinical questions: What are the effects of pharmacological treatments for ADHD in children and adolescents? What are the effects of psychological treatments for ADHD in children and adolescents? What are the effects of combination treatments for ADHD in children and adolescents? We searched: Medline, Embase, The Cochrane Library, and other important databases up to August 2009 (Clinical Evidence reviews are updated periodically, please check our website for the most up-to-date version of this review). We included harms alerts from relevant organisations such as the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the UK Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).

The diagnosis of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in adults has remained controversial. This paper reviews the empirical evidence to date as to whether the diagnosis of ADHD in adults is valid and consistent with the childhood syndrome. Evidence of descriptive, divergent, predictive, and concurrent validity were examined. The available literature provides evidence that adult ADHD can be reliably diagnosed and that the diagnosis confers considerable power to forecast complications and treatment response. Studies of genetic transmission, specific treatment responses, and abnormalities in brain structure and function in affected individuals are also consistent with studies in childhood ADHD. There is converging evidence that adult ADHD is a not rare, valid clinical diagnosis. In addition, studies suggest that adult and child patients with ADHD may share a similar treatment-responsive, underlying neurobiological substrate.

Many studies have reported the long-term efficacy and tolerability of immediate-release formulations of MPH. The disadvantages of such formulations include the need for multiple daily dosing and a potential for abuse. Various extended-release formulations of MPH have been found effective in controlled studies enrolling large numbers of children with ADHD. The efficacy and tolerability of dexmethylphenidate, the active D-isomer of MPH, in an extended-release formulation have also been reported. An extended-release formulation of mixed amphetamine salts (MMAS-XR) that is dosed once daily has been found to be efficacious and well tolerated. The non-stimulant atomoxetine has been reported to be well tolerated and efficacious, although it may not be as effective as stimulants; this formulation is, however, less likely than stimulants to be associated with abuse and diversion. A recently approved prodrug stimulant, lisdexamfetamine dimesylate (LDX), was developed to provide a long duration of effect that is consistent throughout the day, with a reduced potential for abuse. In a placebo-controlled study in children with ADHD, less intersubject variability in T(max), C(max), and AUC from time zero to the last quantifiable concentration was seen in the 8 subjects who received LDX (percent coefficient of variation, 15.3, 20.3, and 21.6, respectively) compared with the 9 subjects who received MAS-XR (52.8, 44.0, and 42.8).In 2 clinical trials, significantly greater improvements in teacher and parent ratings of ADHD symptoms were seen with LDX compared with placebo (P<0.001).A study of the abuse potential of LDX evaluated subjective responses to the effects of oral LDX and immediate-release d-amphetamine in adults with a history of stimulant abuse. LDX was associated with a significantly lower abuse-related liking effect than d-aamphetamine (P = 0.039).

Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is able to induce changes in neuronal activity that outlast stimulation. The underlying mechanisms are not completely understood. They might be analogous to long-term potentiation or depression, as the duration of the effects seems to implicate changes in synaptic plasticity. Norepinephrine (NE) has been shown to play a crucial role in neuronal plasticity in the healthy and injured human brain. Atomoxetine (ATX) and other NE reuptake inhibitors have been shown to increase excitability in different systems and to influence learning processes. Thus, the combination of two facilitative interventions may lead to further increase in excitability and motor learning. But in some cases homeostatic metaplasticity might protect the brain from harmful hyperexcitability. In this study, the combination of 60 mg ATX and 10 Hz rTMS over the primary motor cortex was used to examine changes in cortical excitability and motor learning and to investigate their influence on synaptic plasticity mechanisms.

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a risk factor for substance abuse in adults. Additional psychiatric comorbidity increases this risk. ADHD is associated with different characteristics of substance abuse: substance abuse transitions more rapidly to dependence, and lasts longer in adults with ADHD than those without ADHD. Self-medication may be a factor in the high rate of substance abuse in adults with ADHD. While previous concerns arose whether stimulant therapy would increase the ultimate risk for substance abuse, recent studies have indicated that pharmacologic treatment appears to reduce the risk of substance abuse in individuals with ADHD. When treating adults with ADHD and substance abuse, clinicians should assess the relative severity of the substance abuse, the symptoms of ADHD, and any other comorbid disorders. Generally, stabilizing or addressing the substance abuse should be the first priority when treating an adult with substance abuse and ADHD. Treatment for adults with ADHD and substance abuse should include a combination of addiction treatment/psychotherapy and pharmacotherapy. The clinician should begin pharmacotherapy with medications that have little likelihood of diversion or low liability, such as bupropion and atomoxetine, and, if necessary, progress to the stimulants. Careful monitoring of patients during treatment is necessary to ensure compliance with the treatment plan.

Norepinephrine (NE)-containing terminals densely innervate sympathetic preganglionic neurons in the intermediolateral nucleus and somatic motor neurons in Onuf's nucleus that project through the hypogastric and pudendal nerves, respectively, to innervate the lower urinary tract. In the present study, we pharmacologically analyzed the role of noradrenergic systems on the sympathetic and somatic pathways to the lower urinary tract and asked: 1) Are alpha-1, alpha-2, or beta-adrenergic receptors tonically active along sympathetic and/or somatic reflex pathways? And 2) what is the net effect of increasing the extracellular levels of NE by administration of a NE reuptake inhibitor? To address these questions, we recorded evoked potentials from the central ends of the hypogastric and pudendal nerves in response to electrical stimulation of the pelvic and pudendal nerves in chloralose-anesthetized cats, and the effects of prazosin (1-300 micrograms/kg i.v.), an alpha-1-adrenergic receptor antagonist; idazoxan (1-300 micrograms/kg i.v.), an alpha-2-adrenergic receptor antagonist; propranolol (1 mg/kg i.v.), a beta-adrenergic receptor antagonist; and tomoxetine (0.003-3 mg/kg i.v.), a selective NE reuptake inhibitor, were examined. The results indicate that facilitatory alpha-1-adrenergic receptors are tonically active along both sympathetic and somatic reflex pathways, whereas inhibitory alpha-2-adrenergic receptors are not tonically active. The net effect of acute inhibition of NE reuptake along sympathetic reflex pathways is increased activation of inhibitory alpha-2-adrenergic receptors. Along somatic reflex pathways, increased activation of both facilitatory alpha-1- and inhibitory alpha-2-adrenergic receptors were recorded after acute NE reuptake inhibition. No role for central beta-adrenergic receptors was noted.

Patient demographics were generally similar across regions. More patients from Asia met diagnostic criteria for ADHD inattentive subtype and fewer for combined subtype compared with patients from Europe, North America, or Russia. Asian patients had a lower mean baseline ADHD total score and mean hyperactivity/impulsivity subscore. Treatment effects showed marginal inconsistency and moderate heterogeneity among the regions (percentage of patients achieving a 40% decrease from baseline ADHD scores, atomoxetine versus placebo: Asia 39.6%, 24.0%; Europe 40.2%, 12.1%; North America 45.3%, 21.7%; Russia 54.2%, 33.3%). Inconsistency was observed primarily in Asia versus the other regions. Completion rates with atomoxetine were higher in Asia and Russia (94.4% and 94.3%, respectively) than in Europe (84.3%) or North America (80.4%).
