New Information Regarding Uncommon Psychiatric Adverse Events for All ADHD
{*filter*}

Excerpts:
OTTAWA, CANADA -- September 21, 2006 -- Health Canada is informing Canadians
that the prescribing and patient information for all {*filter*} used for the
management of ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) is being
revised to provide information about the potential for psychiatric adverse
events, including rare reports of agitation and hallucinations in children.

This update comes in light of an ongoing review of psychiatric events
associated with the use of these {*filter*} and follows Health Canada's May 2006
Public Advisory regarding rare heart-related risks for all ADHD {*filter*}. At
that time, Canadians were advised not to use ADHD {*filter*} if they have high
{*filter*} pressure, heart disease or abnormalities, hardening of the arteries or
an overactive thyroid gland. Standardized labeling that identified risk
factors for rare heart-related side effects, and new recommendations to
physicians were added to the prescribing information for all ADHD {*filter*}.

Health Canada continues to monitor the safety of ADHD {*filter*} and Canadians
will continue to be informed if new safety information arises. These {*filter*}
include Adderall XR, Attenade, Biphentin, Concerta, Dexedrine, Ritalin,
Ritalin SR and Strattera.
