3 strengths offer tailored dosing for your child
The recommended starting dose for children 6-11 years old is 100 mg once daily, and 200 mg once daily for those 12-17 years old. Your child’s doctor may gradually increase their dose over 1-3 weeks until they reach the dose that’s right for them. This process is called titration.
The maximum recommended dosage for children 6-17 years old is 400 mg once daily.
Two ways to take Qelbree
The Qelbree capsule can be swallowed whole, or the capsule can be opened and its entire contents sprinkled onto a spoonful of applesauce or pudding.† Do not cut, crush, or chew the capsules.
Qelbree is the only non-stimulant ADHD treatment that can be sprinkled on food for easier dosing for patients who are unable to swallow capsules.
†Once added to the applesauce, Qelbree should be all consumed, without chewing, within two hours. Once added to pudding, Qelbree should be all consumed, without chewing, within 15 minutes. Do not store for future use.
As a non-stimulant, Qelbree
- Has no evidence of abuse or misuse
- Can be conveniently refilled without the need for new prescriptions every month
- Is proven to be safe*, with manageable side effects

Talk with your child's doctor about all medications they take, and see if Qelbree is right for your child.
*Important: Monitor your child for mood or behavior changes. Your child’s doctor should also monitor for changes in blood pressure and heart rate.
