New Drug Found To Improve Driving Performance In Young Adults With ADHD

A new drug, ADDERALL XR? has been found to improve driving performance, cognitive function and attention in young adults with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).//

This observation could be because of the fact that adolescent and adult patients often fail to appreciate the effect that ADHD symptoms such as inattention have on daily activities such as driving.

The researchers hence studied the effect of ADDERALL XR, a major ADHD therapy, on driving performance in young adult patients with ADHD. Participants received doses of ADDERALL XR at 20 milligrams (mg) for the first week and then increased to 40 mg and 50 mg for the second and third weeks, respectively.

All patients were evaluated for driving performance after the medication was administered. The STISIM was used to analyze the critical driving skills, including situation awareness, hazard perception, risk assessment and decision-making under time pressure.

Patients taking the drug demonstrated significant improvement in driving safety and performance compared to a placebo. Safety-related driving parameters, including speeding tickets, traffic tickets, crashes, crash avoidance rating, time to collision and excess speed were some of the factors taken into consideration during the assessment.

Furthermore, ADDERALL XR significantl
