Further study details as provided by Eli Lilly and Company:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Test the hypothesis that atomoxetine hydrochloride is non-inferior to methylphenidate hydrochloride in improving ADHD symptoms following an approximately 8-week period of double blind treatment as assessed by a comparison of response rates

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To compare the tolerability of atomoxetine and methylphenidate as assessed by treatment-emergent adverse events
  • To assess the comparability of the efficacy of atomoxetine and methylphenidate on the Conners' Parent Rating Scale-Revised: Short Form
  • To compare atomoxetine and methylphenidate on other secondary measures
