Short Communication: Agomelatine Treating Patients With ADHD
Journal of Attention Disorders, 06/08/2012
Niederhofer H – When ADHD therapy with Methylphenidate or Atomoxetine is not indicated e.g. because of adverse side effects and if an ADHD patient suffers from additional sleep disorders, Agomelatine might be a helpful therapeutic alternative.
This assumption was proved in ten ADHD patients in a placebo controlled manner.
Agomelatine’s effect was superior to that of placebo, but seems to be less than that of Methylphenidate or placebo.
