This study suggests positive effects of atomoxetine on quality of life, as measured by the KINDL-R scores on emotional well-being, self-esteem, friends and family, in children and adolescents with ADHD and comorbid ODD/CD. No significant treatment effects were seen on family burden, as measured by FaBel total score.
All five CAARS subscales showed good internal consistency at each time point. Similarly, interrater reliability was acceptable for each subscale. Following treatment, CAARS total scores and subscale scores improved significantly from baseline. CAARS subscales also predicted changes in other psychiatric symptoms and functioning. Overall, baseline investigator ratings were stronger predictors of treatment outcome than baseline self-report scores.

The worldwide prevalence of alcohol spectrum disorders could be around 1%. Today there are a number of diagnostic systems available for FASD. The most commonly used are the diagnostic criteria of the Institute of Medicine. The cognitive and behavioural alterations cover a wide range of disorders that are associated to the psychosocial environment in which the child develops. The executive functions are usually found to be affected and most patients associate attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Few studies have been conducted on the effectiveness of treatments such as methylphenidate or atomoxetine in this population.

Approximately 71% of children enrolled were male, approximately 67% met criteria for mixed subtype (both inattentive and hyperactive/impulsive symptoms), and the only common psychiatric comorbidity was oppositional defiant disorder (approximately 38% of the sample). At baseline, symptom severity was rated as moderate to severe for most children. At endpoint, atomoxetine 1.2 mg/kg/day and 1.8 mg/kg/day were consistently associated with superior outcomes in ADHD symptoms compared with placebo and were not different from each other. The dose of 0.5 mg/kg/day was associated with intermediate efficacy between placebo and the 2 higher doses, suggesting a graded dose-response. Social and family functioning also were improved in the atomoxetine groups compared with placebo with statistically significant improvements in measures of children's ability to meet psychosocial role expectations and parental impact. Discontinuations as a result of adverse events were <5% for all groups.

This is the largest study to date assessing stimulant treatment in children and adolescents with ASD, and is the first prospective study quantifying the change over time in the prevalence of treatment with ADHD medications in a population-based national cohort of children and adolescents with ASD. The prevalence of stimulant treatment in youth with ASD of 16% is consistent with earlier studies. The past decade has witnessed a clear and progressive increase in the prescription rates of medications typically used to treat ADHD in children and adolescents in Denmark. This increase is not limited to only those with ADHD, but includes others with neuropsychiatric disorders, including ASD. The risks and benefits of this practice await further study.

In general atomoxetine and methylphenidate have comparable efficacy and equal acceptability in treatment of ADHD in children and adolescents. However OROS methylphenidate is more effective than atomoxetine and may be considered as first line treatment in treatment of ADHD in children and adolescents.

This paper gives an overview of the pharmacology, efficacy, duration, tolerance, and side effects of atomoxetine for children, adolescents, and adults. A systematic analysis of the published clinical studies and poster abstracts was conducted. Atomoxetine is the first selective inhibitor of the noradrenaline transporter that was approved by the FDA in the US as a nonstimulant for the treatment of ADHD in children, adolescents, and adults. In clinical studies, its efficacy was studied in 4,000 patients. Compared with placebo, atomoxetine proved to be superior with respect to reducing impulsiveness, hyperactivity, and inattention. There are indications that its efficacy is comparable to that of methylphenidate. In general, atomoxetine was well tolerated. The most frequently reported adverse events were decrease of appetite, abdominal problems, tiredness, and vertigo. These were classified as mild and found mostly at the beginning of treatment. The existing results indicate that atomoxetine is promising for the treatment of ADHD in children, adolescents, and adults.

This 48-week, open-label extension study involved participants with ADHD who completed a 10-week randomized controlled trial of atomoxetine. Participants received atomoxetine 40 mg/day, followed by step-wise titration to a maximum of 120 mg/day. The primary outcome was safety/tolerability. Secondary outcomes were symptoms of ADHD (Conners' Adult ADHD Rating Scales-Investigator Rated: Screening Version 18-item total score), quality of life (Adult Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder Quality of Life scale), and executive function (Behavior Rating Inventory of Executive Function-Adult Version: Self-report).

The three compounds reviewed have similar tolerability and efficacy to immediate-release methylphenidate, with the advantage of once daily dosing. The properties of these agents, particularly Strattera, make them less able to be abused. Ritalin LA may be superior to Concerta in controlling symptoms of ADHD in the first 4 h following ingestion, but the data should be interpreted with caution.

We found a significant decrease in ADHD Rating Scale-IV-Japanese version scores, from 30.7 to 22.6 (P=0.003). During the Stroop Color-Word Task, we found significantly higher levels of oxyhemoglobin changes in the prefrontal cortex of participants in the atomoxetine condition compared with those in the drug-naïve condition.

A 17-year-old female ingested 2840 mg of atomoxetine in an attempt to kill herself. She presented to an Emergency Department 2-3 hours after ingestion and soon after arrival had a tonic clonic seizure that lasted one minute. An initial electrocardiogram (ECG) revealed a sinus tachycardia with a rate of 110 beats per minute (bpm) and a QRS interval of 93 ms. She was transferred to a pediatric toxicology referral center and had progressive improvement in her symptoms. Gas chromatography and mass spectometry of the urine detected the following drugs: atomoxetine, naproxen, and nicotine. A quantitative serum atomoxetine level of 1995 ng/ml and a quantitative serum naproxen level of 12 mcg/L (30-90 mcg/L anti-inflammatory or analgesic range) were obtained. The patient had no further complications and was without symptoms within 24 hours of hospitalization. Repeat ECG 14 hours following ingestion revealed QRS interval of 79 ms.

This study describes and assesses potential hepatobiliary events related to atomoxetine therapy, as reported in clinical trials and as spontaneous adverse event reports post-launch in 2002.
We examined the effects of direct and indirect DA and NA receptor agonists and selective DA and NA reuptake inhibitors in rats showing high and low levels of impulsivity on the 5CSRTT (designated high impulsive 'HI' and low impulsive 'LI', respectively). Drugs were administered by systemic injection in a randomized, counterbalanced manner.

Visible spectrophotometric and spectrofluorimetric methods were developed for the determination of atomoxetine in pharmaceutical preparations. The spectrophotometric method was based on a nucleophilic substitution reaction of atomoxetine with 1,2-naphthoquinone-4-sulphonate (NQS) in an alkaline medium to form an orange-colored product. The absorbance-concentration plot is rectilinear over the range 5-40 microg mL(-1). The limits of detection and quantification were calculated to be 0.02 microg mL(-1) and 0.06 microg mL(-1), respectively. The spectrofluorimetric method was based on the derivatization reaction of 4-chloro-7-nitro-2,1,3-benzoxadiazole (NBD-Cl) with atomoxetine to produce a fluorescent derivative. The formed highly fluorescent derivative that was measured at 462 nm after excitation at 533 nm. The fluorescence-concentration plot is rectilinear over the range 10-500 ng mL(-1). The limits of detection and quantification were calculated to be 0.19 ng mL(-1) and 0.57 ng mL(-1). The analytical performance of both methods was fully validated, and the results were satisfactory. The methods have been successfully applied for the determination of the studied drug in capsules and the results obtained ware in good agreement with those obtained by the reference method.

Acute-phase data were analyzed from three randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled studies in outpatients aged 6-16 and meeting the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, fourth edition, criteria for ADHD. Subjects received placebo or atomoxetine (max 1.8 mg/kg/day, daily) for 6-8 weeks. Patients were diagnosed with comorbid ODD on structured diagnostic interview (Schedule for Affective Disorders and Schizophrenia for School-aged Children-Present and Lifetime Versions).
