Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants With Adverse Events Leading to Discontinuation [ Time Frame: Baseline through 48 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Mean Change From Baseline to 48 Weeks Endpoint in the Conners' Adult Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Rating Scale-Investigator Rated: Screening Version-Japanese (CAARS-Inv:SV-J) [ Time Frame: Baseline, 48 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    CAARS-Inv:SV-J is a 30-item scale containing 3 subscales: inattention (9 items), hyperactivity/impulsivity (9 items), and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) Index (12 items). Each item is scored 0-3 (0=not at all/never; 1=just a little/once in a while; 2=pretty much/often; 3=very much/very frequently). Total ADHD symptoms score=sum of the inattention subscales (scores range from 0-27) and hyperactivity/impulsivity subscales (scores range from 0-27) with a total score range of 0-54. The ADHD Index scores range from 0-36. Higher scores indicate greater impairment.

  • Mean Change From Baseline to 48 Weeks Endpoint in the Adult Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder Quality of Life (AAQoL)-29 Scores [ Time Frame: Baseline, 48 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    AAQoL is a 29 items participant completed questionnaire rated on a 5-point Likert scale from 1 (Not at all/ Never) to 5 (Extremely/Very Often). AAQoL total (all 29 items) and 4 subscale scores: Life Productivity (11 items); Psychological Health (6 items); Life Outlook (7 items); Relationships (5 items). Total score is computed by (1) reversing scores for all items except the 7 items in the Life Outlook subscale; (2) transforming scores to 0-100 scale (1=0; 2=25; 3=50; 4=75; 5=100); (3) summing item scores and dividing by the item count. Higher total scores indicate better quality of life.

  • Mean Change From Baseline to 48 Weeks Endpoint in the Behavior Rating Inventory of Executive Function -Adult (BRIEF-A) Version: Self Report (BRIEF-A:Self Report ) [ Time Frame: Baseline, 48 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    A 75-item standardized self-reported measure comprised of 3 subscales. Each item is rated on a 3-point Likert scale: 1 (behavior never observed) to 3 (behavior often observed). Global executive composite (GEC) subscale rates participant's GEC in everyday environment (75- 225 total score). Behavioral regulation subscale measures participant's control over behavior (30-90 total score). Metacognition subscale assesses systematic problem-solving ability while sustaining these task-completion efforts in active working memory (40-120 total score). Higher subscale ratings indicate greater perceived impairment.

  • Mean Change From Baseline to 48 Weeks Endpoint in Comorbid, Anxiety Symptoms, as Measured by Hamilton Anxiety Rating Scale-14 (HAMA-14) Items [ Time Frame: Baseline, 48 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The HAMA-14 instrument consists of 14 items that provide an overall measure of general anxiety, including psychic anxiety and somatic anxiety. This instrument is completed by the clinician based on his or her assessment of the participant. Each item is rated on a 5-point scale of 0 (absent) to 4 (very severe). Total score is the sum of the 14 items and ranges from 0 (normal) to 56 (severe). Higher scores indicate greater anxiety.

  • Mean Change From Baseline to 48 Weeks Endpoint in Clinical Global Impressions-Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder-Severity (CGI-ADHD-S) [ Time Frame: Baseline, 48 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The CGI-ADHD-S is a single-item rating of the clinician's assessment of the overall severity of the participant's ADHD symptoms in relation to the clinician's total experience with ADHD participants. CGI-ADHD-S measures severity of the participant's overall severity of ADHD symptoms: 1 (normal, not at all ill) to 7 (among the most extremely ill participants).

  • Mean Change From Baseline to 48 Weeks Endpoint in the Behavior Rating Inventory of Executive Function-Adult (BRIEF-A) Version: Informant Scores (BRIEF-A:Informant Scores) [ Time Frame: Baseline, 48 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Third-party observer of participant completes 75-item scale. Comprised of 3 subscales. Each item rated on 3-point Likert scale: 1 (behavior never observed) to 3 (behavior often observed). Global executive composite (GEC) subscale rates participant's GEC in everyday environment (75-225 total score). Behavioral regulation subscale measures participant's control over behavior (30-90 total score). Metacognition subscale assesses systematic problem-solving ability while sustaining these task-completion efforts in active working memory (40-120 total score). Higher subscale ratings indicate greater perceived impairment.

  • Mean Change From Baseline to 48 Weeks Endpoint in Comorbid, Depressive Symptoms, as Measured by Hamilton Depression Rating Scale-17 (HAMD-17) Items [ Time Frame: Baseline, 48 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The HAMD-17 instrument consists of 17 items used to assess the severity of depression and its improvement during the course of therapy. This instrument is completed by the clinician based on his or her assessment of the participant. Each item was evaluated and scored using either a 5-point scale of 0 (not present) to 4 (very severe) or a 3-point scale of 0 (not present) to 2 (marked). The total score is the sum of the scores from HAMD-17 Items 1 through 17 and ranges from 0 (not at all depressed) to 52 (severely depressed). Higher scores indicate greater symptom severity.
