Amfexa® (dexamfetamine sulfate)

Amfexa® can be used as part of a comprehensive treatment programme for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children and adolescents aged 6 to 17 years when response to previous methylphenidate treatment is considered clinically inadequate. 1 Amfexa tablets are not licensed for use in adults for ADHD

Dosing & administration

  • At the start of treatment with Amfexa®, dose titration is necessary 1
  • Recommended starting daily dose is 5 mg once or twice daily e.g. at mealtimes 1
  • Dose can be increased if necessary by weekly increments of 5 mg daily, depending on how well it’s tolerated and working. The maximum daily dose in children and adolescents usually is 20 mg, although doses of 40 mg may in rare cases be necessary for optimum titration1
  • When treating ADHD, it helps to carefully choose the time treatment is taken so it combats any school or behavioural difficulties most effectively 1
