Background: The objective of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of atomoxetine, a new and
highly selective inhibitor of the norepinephrine transporter, in reducing symptoms of attention-
deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) among adults by using drug-placebo response curve
Methods: We analyzed data from two double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel design studies of
adult patients (Study I, N = 280; Study II, N = 256) with DSM-IV-defined ADHD who were recruited
by referral and advertising. Subjects were randomized to 10 weeks of treatment with atomoxetine
or placebo, and were assessed with the Conners Adult ADHD Rating Scales and the Clinical Global
Impression of ADHD Severity scale before and after treatment.
Results: Those treated with atomoxetine were more likely to show a reduction in ADHD
symptoms than those receiving placebo. Across all measures, the likelihood that an atomoxetine-
treated subject improved to a greater extent than a placebo-treated subject was approximately
0.60. Furthermore, atomoxetine prevented worsening of most symptom classes.
Conclusion: From these findings, we conclude that atomoxetine is an effective treatment for
ADHD among adults when evaluated using several criteria.
