Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in Adult Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) Investigator Symptom Rating Scale (AISRS) Total Score at Week 3 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 3 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    AISRS: an 18-item scale administered by the investigator. It included 9 items that evaluated symptoms of inattention and 9 items that evaluated symptoms of impulsivity and hyperactivity. Each item was rated from 0 (none) to 3 (severe). AISRS total score was calculated as sum of all the items on the scale and ranged from 0 to 54. A higher score corresponded to a worse severity of ADHD.

Each item was rated from 0 (none) to 3 (severe). AISRS total score was calculated as sum of all the items on the scale and ranged from 0 to 54. A higher score corresponded to a worse severity of ADHD.

  • Percentage of Participants With 1 or 2 Score on Clinical Global Impression-Severity Scale (CGI-S) [ Time Frame: Week 1, 2, 3 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    CGI-S: 7-point clinician rated scale to assess severity of participant's current illness state; range: 1 (normal - not ill at all) to 7 (among the most extremely ill patients). Higher score = more affected. Participants with a score of 1 (normal - not ill at all) or 2 (borderline mentally ill) are reported.

  • Percentage of Participants With Less Than or Equal to 18 Score on Adult ADHD Investigator Symptom Rating Scale (AISRS) [ Time Frame: Week 1, 2, 3 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    AISRS: an 18-item scale administered by the investigator. It included 9 items that evaluated symptoms of inattention and 9 items that evaluated symptoms of impulsivity and hyperactivity. Each item was rated from 0 (none) to 3 (severe). AISRS total score was calculated as sum of all the items on the scale and ranged from 0 to 54. A higher score corresponded to a worse severity of ADHD.

  • Percentage of Participants With Sustained Response of at Least 30 Percent Decrease From Baseline in Time-Sensitive ADHD Symptom Scale (TASS) Total Score [ Time Frame: Day 7, 14, 21 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    TASS: a time sensitive 18-item questionnaire completed by the participant that measured the severity of current ADHD symptoms. It included 9 items that evaluate symptoms of inattention sub-scale and 9 items that evaluate symptoms of impulsivity and hyperactivity sub-scale. Each item was rated from 0 (none) to 3 (severe). TASS total score was calculated as sum of all the items on the scale and ranged from 0 to 54. A higher total score corresponds to a worse severity of ADHD. TASS was administered each day from Day 1 to 14 and on Day 21 in each intervention period. Participants with sustained response were those who had at least 30 percent decrease from baseline in TASS total score, which was maintained at all visits up to the time of assessment. Sustained responders at Day 7, 14 and 21 were analyzed.

Participants rated each item on a scale ranging from 1 (not at all/never) to 5 (extremely/very often). The scores of each item were then transformed to a 0 to 100 point scale, higher scores indicating better quality of life. The score for each subscale was calculated as the sum of the corresponding item scores. Total score ranges were: life productivity (0 to 1100), psychological health (0 to 600), life outlook (0 to 700) and relationships (0 to 500), where higher subscale score indicates better quality of life for each subscale.
