Trade Name:  Adderall XR
Generic Name or Proper Name (*):  amphetamines mixed salts
Indications Studied:  ADHD
Label Changes Summary:  * Expanded labeling for 13-17 year olds * On a mg/kg body weight basis children 6-12 years have a higher clearance than adolescents or adults. Body weight is the primary determinant * There was not adequate evidence that doses greater than 20 mg/day conferred additional benefit in a placebo-controlled study conducted in adolescents aged 13-17 with ADHD * In a single-dose PK study in adolescents, isolated increases in systolic blood pressure (SBP) were observed in patients receiving 10 mg and 20 mg Adderall XR. Higher single doses were associated with a greater increase in SBP * Sustained increases in blood pressure should be treated with dose reduction and/or appropriate medication * Information on dose, PK parameters, and AE profile
