Diagnosis is confirmed by Adult ADHD Clinical Diagnostic Scale (ACDS). Note: The diagnosis of ADHD and appropriateness of inclusion in the trial will be independently confirmed by external expert review. Experts will review diagnostic and other screening instruments for each subject and approval is required before a subject can be randomized. The Mini International Neuropsychiatric Interview (MINI) will be administered to confirm the absence of any other comorbid psychiatric disorders.
  • Subject has an ADHD RS IV with adult prompts total score of ≥ 26 at screening and at Baseline.
  • Subject has a CGI S score of ≥ 4 at screening and at Baseline.
  • Subject has a negative breath alcohol test and a negative urine drug screen (UDS) for any illicit drug at screening.
  • If the subject has a positive drug screen for ADHD medications (eg, amphetamine) at screening, the subject must have a negative repeat UDS at least 7 days before baseline.
  • Subject is male or a non pregnant, non lactating female.
  • Female subjects must have a negative serum pregnancy test at screening; females who are post menopausal (defined as at least 12 months of spontaneous amenorrhea) and those who have undergone hysterectomy or bilateral oophorectomy will be exempted from the pregnancy test.
  • Female subjects of childbearing potential and male subjects with female partners of childbearing potential must agree to use an effective and medically acceptable form of birth control, as defined in Section 10.4, throughout the study period.

  • Subject is currently taking or has taken within 6 weeks prior to screening an antidepressent medication; antipsychotic medication; or lithium (any lithium preparation or formulation).
  • Subject is currently taking or has taken within the previous 6 months an anticonvulsant medication (eg, phenytoin, carbamazepine, lamotrigine, valproic acid); antipsychotic medication; or lithium (any lithium preparation or formulation).

  • The subject's screening hematology results show an alanine aminotransferase (ALT) or aspartate aminotransferase (AST) value ≥ 2 times the ULN, or a blood urea nitrogen (BUN) value ≥ 1.5 times the ULN for the reference range.
  • Subject has a history of allergic reaction or has a known or suspected sensitivity to any substance that is contained in the study medication formulation.
  • Subject is currently participating or has participated in a clinical trial within the last 90 days or has participated in more than 2 clinical trials within the past year. This includes studies using marketed compounds or devices. Note: Subjects will be checked for multiple study enrollments by site staff.
  • Subject has been incarcerated in a prison within 12 months prior to Screening.
  • Subject has previously been randomized in a clinical trial of dasotraline.
