points at endpoint.(1) The ADHD-RS-IV is a standardized test for assessing symptoms of ADHD and for assessing their response to treatment.(5,6) This scale, which contains 18 items, is based on the ADHD diagnostic criteria as defined in the APA's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition, Text Revision(R), a publication of the American Psychiatric Association.(7)

Investigators also measured the efficacy of VYVANSE with the Clinical Global Impressions-Improvement (CGI-I) scale and found that the percentage of subjects taking VYVANSE that rated improved ranged from 57 to 61 percent across all doses and was significantly greater than placebo.(1) The CGI-I scale is a standard assessment used to rate the severity of a patient's illness and improvement over time.(8)

The most commonly reported adverse events in this study were decreased appetite, difficulty falling asleep, and dry mouth.
