ADHD is one of the most common neurobehavioral disorders in the U.S. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s 2007 data, about one in ten children aged 4 — 17 in the U.S. had at any time in their life received a diagnosis of ADHD.1 Patients with ADHD may suffer from symptoms such as difficulty paying attention, impulsivity and being overly active in some cases. The condition can last into adulthood. Although there are many treatment options for ADHD, until Quillivant XR there was no once-daily, extended-release liquid option for the treatment of this condition.
Pfizer is pleased to provide patients and their caregivers with a new option to help manage this challenging condition,”said Sam Azoulay, M.D., senior vice president of medical and development for Pfizer’s Emerging Markets and Established Products Business Units. “We also recognize that caring for and treating a child with ADHD goes beyond medication. We look forward to working with mothers and other caregivers of children with ADHD to provide meaningful resources to the ADHD community.
