- Change in Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 4th Edition (DSM-IV) Attention-deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) Checklist [ Time Frame: baseline and weekly through week 12 post randomization ]All 18 ADHD symptoms are rated on a scale of 0 (none) to 3 (severe) since the previous study visit. The scores are summed to create a total ADHD severity scale score ranging from 0 (none) to 54 (most severe). A single value of mean change in ADHD severity for each group (placebo and atomoxetine) was calculated using linear mixed models in an intent-to-treat an analysis.
- Time Line Followback Interview (TLFB) [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]The TLFB assesses the number of days in which a substance was used in the past 28 days. The TLFB is administered by the clinician and uses a 28-day calendar with anchor points to record this information. This instrument relies on confidential self-report of the adolescent participant. The result is reported as mean change in the number of days used substances in the past 28 days from baseline to the end of treatment using linear mixed models in an intent-to-treat analysis.
- Side Effect Form for Children and Adolescents (SEFCA) [ Time Frame: weekly from randomization to 12 weeks post-randomization ]The SEFCA is a clinician-administered instrument that systematically assesses 52 possible side effects and rates them on a scale of 0 (not present) to 3 (severe). The instrument relies on confidential, self-report of the adolescent.The number of serious adverse events was recorded by intervention assignment.
