Data suggest ADDERALL XR significantly improved simulated driving in young adults with ADHD

San Diego, CA, November 19, 2004 The Washington Neuropsychological Institute today announced that preliminary data suggested that ADDERALL XR significantly improved simulated driving performance in young adults aged 19 to 25 years with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) for up to 12 hours after taking the medication, as compared with placebo. In addition, ADDERALL XR significantly improved ADHD symptom control of young adults with ADHD as compared with placebo. This preliminary, six-week, double-blind, placebo-controlled crossover study, led by Gary G. Kay, Ph.D., Washington Neuropsychological Institute, Washington, DC, was presented today at the 17th Annual U.S. Psychiatric & Mental Health Congress in San Diego, CA.

"Young adults with ADHD receive twice the number of traffic violations and have more license suspensions and revocations than their peers without ADHD. Records also show that people with ADHD were at fault in more car crashes and were involved in more severe car accidents than people without ADHD. This study provides us with important data demonstrating that ADDERALL XR can help young adults control their ADHD symptoms throughout a 12-hour day and therefore improve their ability to drive better and more safely."

The three main symptoms of ADHD include inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity. Up to 65 percent of children with ADHD may still exhibit symptoms into adulthood. If left untreated, these symptoms may seriously and adversely affect patients as well as their families and friends. Over 8 million adults in the U.S. may exhibit symptoms of ADHD. Appropriate diagnosis and treatment of ADHD in adults helps improve self-esteem, work performance and
