We have a research study available for adolescents with Attention-Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and aggressive symptoms. The purpose of this research study is to find better and safer medications to help control aggressive behaviors in adolescents with ADHD.
The investigational medication will be provided at no cost and compensation is provided for time and travel. No health insurance is required to participate in any of our ADHD clinical trials.
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) Clinical Trials
What is ADHD?
ADHD is a disorder that makes it difficult for a person to pay attention and control impulsive behaviors. People with ADHD may also be restless and almost constantly active. ADHD is not just a childhood disorder. Although the symptoms of ADHD begin in childhood, ADHD can continue through adolescence and adulthood. Even though hyperactivity tends to improve as a child becomes a teen, problems with inattention, disorganization, and poor impulse control often continue through the teen years and into adulthood.1
Examples of Impulsive Aggression:
Getting into fights at school or with family members
Slamming doors, knocking things over, and/or breaking things
Yelling, shouting, getting angry, cursing, and/or threatening people
Hitting or hurting themselves, including thoughts of doing so

Adolescent ADHD Clinical Trials
If you answer YES to all of the following questions then your child may qualify for our ADHD clinical trials.
1. Is your child between the ages of 4-17 years old?
2. Are you or another parent/guardian willing and able to accompany them to all study visits?
Final eligibility is determined during a screening visit at our study site at Orange. During this visit, your child will:
Meet with a professional physician, psychiatrist, or psychologists and be interviewed about their mental and physical health
Review additional information
Undergo a physical examination and have their vitals taken
If your child qualifies and decides to participate in an ADHD research study:
A study doctor will closely monitor them, their symptoms, and overall health
All study-related medical care and study medication will be provided at no cost
Transportation may be provided at no cost if you and your child need assistance
You will sign an Informed Consent Form (ICF), and your child will sign an Assent Form, which outline which procedures they can expect during each visit
You will be compensated for each completed visit
