Rapid and extended release for full-day coverage.
By reducing the impact of ADHD symptoms, Qelbree can help improve your child's difficult behavior related to ADHD. Qelbree met the goal of 3 different clinical trials – a significant reduction in ADHD symptom scores in 6 weeks. For some patients, Qelbree reduced ADHD symptom scores as early as week 1.†
Your child’s doctor can recommend Qelbree as part of a total treatment program that may include counseling and support therapies.
†In one study of children 6-11 years of age, ADHD symptom score reductions were statistically significant for 100 mg and 200 mg doses, beginning at week 1. In a second study of adolescents 12-17 years of age, ADHD symptom score reductions were statistically significant for 400 mg, beginning at week 2.
Clinical Trial Results
How we ran the studies:
Qelbree was studied in three clinical trials involving boys and girls ages 6-17 who had been diagnosed with ADHD.
The studies measured what kind of changes in ADHD symptoms these children experienced over the course of the six- to eight-week clinical trials. They measured the frequency and severity of ADHD symptoms, including inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity.
Qelbree showed significant reduction in symptoms compared to placebo.
Qelbree was also consistently proven to be effective and safe in multiple clinical studies in over 800 patients with a once-a-day convenient dose.
