For your patients who require an extended‑release methylphenidate product, Adhansia XR significantly improved ADHD symptoms in patients 12‑17 years.1*

*4-week, randomized, double-blind, multicenter, placebo-controlled, safety and efficacy study in 354 adolescent patients (12-17 years) with ADHD.

Primary endpoint: Change in the adolescent ADHD-5-Rating Scale total score from baseline (Visit 2, Week 1) to Visit 6, Week 5. Adhansia XR demonstrated a statistically significant treatment effect compared to placebo at Visit 6, Week 5 for the 45 and 70 mg dose groups.1,2

ADOLESCENT SYMPTOM STUDY

Symptom improvement evaluated in a fixed-dose trial over 4 weeks1

STUDY DESIGN1,2

Description: A 4-week, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial with a fixed-dosed design, involving 354 adolescent patients (12-17 years) who met the DSM-5 criteria for ADHD.

Patients were randomized to one of five treatment arms with Adhansia XR 25, 45, 70, 85 mg, or placebo. Doses were titrated to a fixed dose over 2 weeks, then maintained at the fixed dose for an additional 2 weeks.

Primary endpoint: Change from baseline (Visit 2, Week 1) ADHD-5-RS total score at the end of the final evaluation visit (Visit 6, Week 5) vs placebo.

*Combined=inattentive and hyperactive/impulsive.

PRIMARY ENDPOINT:

Improved ADHD symptoms in adolescents (12-17 years) vs placebo1

Adhansia XR improved symptoms in adolescents (12-17 years) vs placebo, measured by the change in ADHD-5-RS total score from baseline (Visit 2, Week 1) to Week 5 (Visit 6)1,2

Significant improvements were seen at doses of 45 and 70 mg.

PRIMARY EFFICACY RESULTS1,2

Study 3 primary endpoint

The ADHD-5-RS is an 18-question, clinician-administered scale assessing ADHD inattention and hyperactivity-impulsivity symptoms and their severity based on the DSM-5 ADHD criteria.1,2

n=number of subjects in the primary efficacy analysis set; LS=least squares; SE=standard error; CI=95% confidence interval, not adjusted for multiple comparisons.

*Statistically significantly different from placebo after adjusting for multiplicity.1

Difference (drug minus placebo) in LS mean change from baseline.1

Most common adverse reactions
& discontinuation rates1

In short-term controlled trials in adolescent patients, efficacy was demonstrated at dosages of 70 mg daily, but dosages ≥70 mg daily were associated with a disproportionate increase in the incidence of certain ARs.1

Discontinuation rates due to ARs in the adolescent trial (12-17 years)1: Adhansia XR 3% vs placebo 0%.

The most frequent ARs leading to discontinuation in ≥1% of those taking Adhansia XR and at a rate greater than placebo was irritability (1%). Two patients taking Adhansia XR 70 or 85 mg had delirium leading to discontinuation.
