Study Description
Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the efficacy, safety and tolerability of SPN-810 in the treatment of impulsive aggression in subjects with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in conjunction with standard ADHD treatment.

The frequency of impulsive aggression behaviors will be assessed as a primary outcome. Additionally, the severity and improvement in impulsive aggression, and quality of life measures for the subject and caregiver will be assessed using validated scales.
