Physicians Express Continued Need for Safe and Effective Nonstimulant Therapies in the Treatment of Adult Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder

Current and Emerging Drugs Will Not Surpass Vyvanse as the Clinical Gold Standard, According to a New Report From Decision Resources

WALTHAM, Mass., Jan. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Decision Resources, one of the world's leading research and advisory firms focusing on pharmaceutical and healthcare issues, finds that physicians indicate there is an unmet need for a safe and effective nonstimulant therapy approved for adult attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) with no risk of suicidal ideation.

As a result, physicians would greatly welcome a safer and more effective nonstimulant alternative to Eli Lilly's Strattera as a first-line therapy for adult ADHD.

The new report entitled Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder: Emerging Therapies Fall Short of Physicians' Expectations for Safer and More-Effective Nonstimulants finds that current and emerging drugs have not yet demonstrated substantial clinical advantages over Shire's Vyvanse, Decision Resources' 2008 clinical gold standard in the treatment of ADHD.
