Further study details as provided by Eli Lilly and Company:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To test the hypothesis that atomoxetine and psychoeducation given for 10 weeks is superior to placebo and psychoeducation in improving overall
  • functioning of patients with ADHD as measured by the mean change in the total score of the Child Health and Illness Profile-Child Edition-Parent form (CHIP-CE-Parent form) domain Achievement.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To compare the effects of atomoxetine and psychoeducation with those of placebo and psychoeducation at 10 weeks in patients with ADHD as measured by change in the CHIP-CE-Parent form domains Satisfaction, Comfort, Resilience, and Risk avoidance.
  • To compare the effects of atomoxetine and psychoeducation with those of placebo and psychoeducation at 10 weeks in patients with ADHD with regard to core ADHD symptoms, as measured by the ADHDRS total score.
  • To compare the effects of atomoxetine and psychoeducation with those of placebo and psychoeducation at 10 weeks in patients with ADHD with regard to severity of illness and improvement, as measured by the CGI-ADHD-S and CGI-ADHD-I.
  • To compare the effects of atomoxetine and psychoeducation with those of placebo and psychoeducation at 10 weeks in patients with ADHD with regard to self-perception, as measured by the "I Think I Am" ("Jag tycker jag ar") tool.
  • To compare the effects of atomoxetine and psychoeducation with those of placebo and psychoeducation at 10 weeks in patients with ADHD as measured by change in all twelve CHIP-CE-Parent form subdomains.
  • To compare the effects of atomoxetine and psychoeducation with those of placebo and psychoeducation at 10 weeks in patients with ADHD as measured by change in total CHIP-CE-Parent form score.
  • To compare the effects of atomoxetine and psychoeducation with those of placebo and psychoeducation at 10 weeks in patients with ADHD with regard to family stress, as measured by the Appraisals of Stress in Child-Rearing (ASCR).
  • To compare the effects of atomoxetine and psychoeducation with those of placebo and psychoeducation at 10 weeks in patients with ADHD with regard to family burden of illness, as measured by the FBIM.
  • To investigate the concurrent validity of the FBIM and the ASCR in order to test the validity of the former instrument in a Swedish population.
  • To assess whether the changes in scores on the aforementioned rating scales are maintained over the longer term (at week 17, 25, 37, and 49, respectively; for "I think I am" at week 49 only).
  • To investigate if the results are modified by comorbid and/or developmental problems as measured by the "Five to Fifteen" (FTF) and K-SADS.
  • To assess the long-term safety of atomoxetine.
  • To assess the utilization of resources and costs to families and society between atomoxetine and placebo
  • during the 10 week double blind treatment period and for each patient during the following open label extension period, using the Resource Utilization Questionnaire (RUQ)
