Milnacipran for Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Symptoms in Adult Asperger’s Disorder
Milnacipran might be useful for ADHD symptoms, exerting its effects by increasing serotonin and noradrenaline activities in Asperger’s disorder.
Recurrent Suicidal Ideation During Intravenous Ketamine Treatment.
This case represents one of the earliest reports on the safety and efficacy of milnacipran in CAP population as an add-on treatment for difficult-to-treat cases of ADHD with comorbid anxiety and enuresis and well-conducted large studies are needed to replicate this finding.
Add-on Milnacipran Boosts Methylphenidate Response in an Adolescent With Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder With Comorbid Anxiety and Enuresis.
DFX-G was associated with greater satisfaction and clinically sufficient ferritin control compared with the findings for DFX-DT, and no patients required dose reduction because of safety issues, however, physicians will need to monitor the DFX dose after switching the formula.
The effects of serotonin and/or noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors on impulsive-like action assessed by the three-choice serial reaction time task: a simple and valid model of impulsive action using rats
The results indicate that the 3-CSRTT could provide an appropriate and simpler rodent model of impulsive-like action and that milnacipran could have some beneficial effects on impulsivity-related disorders.
Effects of norepinephrine transporter gene variants on NET binding in ADHD and healthy controls investigated by PET
The role of genetic influence of the NE system on NET binding to be pertubated in ADHD is supported, and symptoms of hyperactivity and impulsivity correlated with NET BPND in the cerebellum depending on genotype.

An open trial of venlafaxine in adult patients with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
Data suggest that controlled trials should be conducted with venlafaxine for ADHD, and patients who could tolerate the medication and showed a good response that was well maintained are suggested.
Open-label trial of venlafaxine in adults with attention deficit disorder.
The results of an open-label trial of the recently marketed antidepressant venlafaxine in 16 adult patients with ADD decreased ADD ratings by almost half.

Efficacy of a mixed amphetamine salts compound in adults with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.
Adderall was effective and well tolerated in the short-term treatment of adults with ADHD and more work is needed to evaluate the long-term effects of Adderall, or other amphetamine compounds, in the treatment of adult attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.

The most promising areas for research at this time appear to be in-depth studies of response to stimulants and more physiological studies using brain imaging techniques.
Effectiveness and tolerability of tomoxetine in adults with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
This preliminary study showed that tomoxetine was effective in treating adult ADHD and was well tolerated, and these promising results provide support for further studies of tomoxettine over an extended period of treatment.

A variety of pharmacologic agents are available in treating ADHD: stimulant medications remain the first-line treatment for noncomorbid ADHD, whereas tricyclic antidepressants and bupropion are recommended for stimulant nonresponders and patients with more than one psychiatric disorder.
Venlafaxine in adults with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder: an open clinical trial.
Venlafaxine may be a promising agent for the treatment of ADHD in adults and controlled clinical trials are needed to further examine this issue.
Atomoxetine and stroop task performance in adult attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.
The absence of cognitive deterioration from atomoxetine, along with improved performance in a subgroup of patients in this large study, supports the safety of atomxetine in this regard and its potential for improving a significant source of impairment for adults with ADHD.
A controlled clinical trial of bupropion for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder in adults.
The results suggest a therapeutic role for bupropion in the armamentarium of agents for ADHD in adults, while further validating the continuity of pharmacological responsivity of ADHD across the lifespan.
